Whenever people see a photo of Santorini for the first time, they get the desire to visit it. It is a volcanic island (part of the Cyclades island group) in Greece that receives quite a lot of visitors every year. The breathtaking ocean views, traditional Grecian architecture, alluring beaches, and wonderful local wineries are just some of the things that make this island great. Both snorkeling and scuba diving are popular activities here, while you can also visit some great vineyards, including Roussos Winery, Santo Wines, Boutari Winery, and the Argiros Estate.
Another notable activity is heading down to the Museum of Prehistoric Thira, which features artifacts that were found in the ruins of Akrotiri, a Minoan Bronze Age settlement on Santorini. This is actually the settlement that is said to be the inspiration for Plato’s tale of Atlantis. Watching the sunset on Santorini is also said to be one of the most magical things a person can experience.
