SUNSET FROM OIA, A ROMANTIC DINNER IN IMEROVIGLI, THE  RED AND WHITE BEACH, WINE TASTING.

It is enough to say Santorini.  But why and so famous, so popular and charming? The most praised of the Greek islands? It is for the magic of the sunset or for the surrealistic landscape dropped from the paintings of Salvador Dali or for  dominant rocks rising proudly from the sea  painted with the colors of the earth volcanic? Santorini is ranked world's top island and is the most visited Greek Island.

Santorini Island is part of the Cyclades Islands cluster and one of the prime vacation spots in the world. Thousands of travellers select it as their destination every year. It is celebrated for its awe-inspiring volcano Caldera, colourful beaches, breathtaking prehistoric and ancient sites, fun-filled nightlife, and last but not least, its spellbinding sunset view, considered by many to be the most beautiful view in the world.

Santorini is consideret the most romantic islands in Greece. Enjoing Santorini is basically very simple. Delighted and tanned after a day spent on the pebbled black beaches of Santorini , or perhaps red or white beach, you will enjoy the end of an unforgettable day watching the most amazing sunset ever.

Santorini, but also Θῆρα, "Thera" in ancient greek is the southernmost island of the Cyclades, in the Aegean Sea, and is the largest of the 12 islands of the archipelago. The name Santorini was given to it by the Venetians in honor of Saint Irene.The municipality of Santorini comprises the inhabited islands of Santorini and Therasia and the uninhabited islands of Nea Kameni, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi, and Christiana.

The island is the result of repeated sequences of shield volcano construction followed by caldera collapse. The inner coast around the caldera is a sheer precipice of more than 300 m drop at its highest, and exhibits the various layers of solidified lava on top of each other. Santorini was Atlantis? Many serious investigators think that the source of the legend is actually the Minoan eruption of Santorini.

Whatever and wherever Atlantis was, if such a place really once existed, we probably will never know for sure. However, there are a number of clues to be found in Plato's story that make many people believe that the destructive Minoan eruption on Santorini is the most likely candidate for being the historic fact behind the story.
