The island of Santorini
Santorini is a top holiday destination, famous all around the world for its breath-taking beauty. The volcanic eruption of 1.600 BC forged the unique caldera, creating the imposing cliffs that offer impressive scenery that you will not find anywhere else. The island’s rich history dates back to the prehistoric times, and you will discover it in the archaeological sites of Akrotiri and Ancient Thera. Santorini’s beaches are known for their black sands, a reminder of the volcanic heritage of the island best showcased in the beaches of Perissa, Perivolos and Kamari but also at the unusual Red and White Beaches. The wines of Santorini are exquisite, and several wineries around the island offer guided tours and wine-tastings, so make sure to try a glass of the famous Vinsanto and the one-of-a-kind volcanic Santorinian wines. Do not miss visiting the villages of Santorini, especially the amazing Oia for its ambience and the sunset views, the ever-exciting capital Fira, the medieval Pyrgos, the castle-city of Emporio and the breathtaking Imerovigli. Ask the people of Villa Soula to rent a car for you so as to explore every single corner of an island that is gorgeous and spectacular in every notion.
