Know More about Santorini

Best time to visit:

AUG - OCT

The Ifestia Festival

Santorini, a prominent Greek city that arose from the ashes of a volcanic eruption, soars above the Aegean Sea. The iconic maze of white cave houses, blue-domed churches, and infinity pools spilling over the horizon are familiar sights to behold above caldera walls. Wander the whitewashed steps of the city to Oia, where you can dine with a spectacular view of the Santorini volcano. In Fira, you can see the ruins of prehistoric Thera and the Three Bells. As the sun sets, head to Imerovigli, Santorini's balcony, for unobstructed panoramic views. Make a lasting impression by strolling along the multi-colored sands at the foot of the island-city, where the blue seas await.

Santorini is known for its rugged volcanic landscape, whitewashed houses, and pristine beaches. The view from the village of Oia is one of the most spectacular, especially at dusk when the setting sun paints the houses in a golden hue. The ruins of the ancient Minoan town of Akrotiri are also worth visiting, as the furniture, pottery, frescoes, and buildings have been well preserved. The Red Beach, a narrow strip of sandy stretch backed by rust-colored rocky cliffs, is another great attraction on this island. The deep turquoise sea contrasts nicely with the red cliffs.

Summer months, from June to mid-September, are considered the best time to visit Santorini for a vacation. Although midsummer is typically hot, a cool breeze in the evening is not uncommon.
