Santorini Guide

Santorini Overview

The volcano that has become the focal point for Santorini’s visitors last erupted in 1956, bringing with it a series of devastating earthquakes and causing considerable loss of property and life.  The volcano sleeps today, resting after its centuries-long effort to shape the Aegean to its liking.   During one of its previous 14 or so known eruptions, the amount of magma spewed forth was so great, it caused...

Arriving on Santorini

Much like other volcanic locations, Santorini can look rather otherworldy.  Deep reds and blacks dominate the colour of the jagged rocks and cliffs; graphite can be found lending a unique ambience to hotels and restaurants and the only thing that seems to grow are the myriad vines that go towards creating Santorini’s varied wines...

Thanks to the wide variety of cultures and civilisations that have contributed to Santorini’s past, there is a plethora of artifacts and treasures spread over the island for us to see and admire today.  At the risk of repeating ourselves, Acrotiri is a must-visit, as is the site of ancient Thira, where remains of both Hellenistic and Roman settlements can be found, along with some 3rd and 4th century monuments...

Why Santorini?

Describing Santorini as beautiful would be wrong, describing it as deeply impressive and at times, awe-inspiring would be far more accurate.  Just look at the beaches for example, nearby Mykonos has beautiful white, sandy beaches, but Santorini has impressive black and red sandy ones.  The sight of the hotels and houses clinging to the edge of the cliffs is something that is rarely seen and makes for some fantastic photos and hours of simply drinking in the view...
