Santorini

Santorini is an island for lovers and dreamers. Created by a volcanic explosion thousands of years ago, the wild scenery is breath-catchingly beautiful. Greece's most exclusive resorts dangle on the edge of the flooded caldera, surrounded by a horizon of endless blue. This is an island of pure drama: black and red beaches, underwater hot springs, sugar-cube villages strategically placed for sunset. This stark landscape also produces some of the most interesting wines in the world.
