2-Day independent trip to Santorini from Athens

Even if you’ve never been to this Cyclades island in the Aegean Sea, you’d still recognize it immediately – candy-colored houses carved into cliffs, sapphire waters, gleaming white buildings topped with half-spheres the color of a stormy sky.

The post on Santorini reads: “The Greek Island of Santorini was formed several thousand years ago by one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history. Now the volcano, still believed to be active, stands surrounded by spectacular multicoloured cliffs. This sight draws visitors here from all over the world every year. Visitors also come to Santorini for the beautiful whitewashed Greek architecture, welcoming local culture and world class Mediterranean cuisine.”

The site proposes to travelers a tour in the narrow alleys and the small fascinating shopping areas in FiraOia and Athinios harbor; a swim in the lovely sandy beaches especially Kokkini Paralia [Red beach]; a visit to the archaeological site on Akrotiri, to museums and religious monuments on the island; seeing the volcano up close; sailing around the island on tourist boats; enjoying the breathtaking sunset views and the intense night life. It lays stress on the island’s high quality tourist infrastructure, and the ability to cater for all of visitors’ needs any time of the year. Another interesting option for visitors is to take trips to neighboring islands.
