Santorini is world famous for its caldera – the perimetric cliffs of the crater in the center of the island formed by one of the strongest volcanic eruptions about 3,000 years ago, traces of which were found in North America. The archaeological dig in Akrotiri has revealed remains of an ancient village frozen in time from the lava which covered it during the eruption. This unique landscape of red and black cliffs with villages of white-washed houses built on their rims combined with the sun setting in the sea makes for a truly romantic spot on earth. If you do venture up to ancient Thira you will be able to see the ruins and take in the majestic panoramic views of the island.
