A bit about Santorini
Santorini is crescent-shaped island consisting of beautiful beaches, jaw dropping scenery, ancient cities, a plethora of culinary delights including fine wine, and…an active volcano! The island’s two principal towns, Oia and Fira, cling to cliffs above a volcano whose crater actually sits under the sea. The towns overlook the sea with small islands to the west and beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles. This rugged island is like a huge geological museum where you can take in an unbelievable array of geological structures, and constantly feel amazed.
