Chances are you’ve stumbled on snapshots of Santorini’s sunsets. If not, picture this: blue-domed, whitewashed houses hovering over volcanic cliffs, the sun dipping into the horizon above cerulean waters, painting the sky in vivid shades. Sweeping stairways lead from clustered villages to black-pebble beaches, or sandy enclaves encircled by rocky bluffs. Santorini serves up postcard perfection.

FUN FACT

Santorini was home to one of the planet’s largest volcanic eruptions ever recorded, the Minoan eruption of the 2nd millennium BC. The eruption triggered the collapse of the Minoan civilization that populated many islands of the Aegean Sea—you can visit archaeological remnants of this ancient society at the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri on Santorini!
