Santorini

Santorini is something of a paradise island famous for its jaw-dropping sunsets, world class beaches and spectacular clifftop villages. The combination of its incredible scenery and relaxed atmosphere leads to this Greek destination often being referred to as one of the planet's very best islands.

Located around 120-miles southeast of mainland Greece, this volcanic island is also a popular destination for wine-lovers thanks to the presence of the Assyrtiko grape and its ancient vineyards. Also known as Thira, it is a member of the Cyclades Islands and is home to the Nea Kameni volcano which has a 2.5 million year history.

Myth has it Santorini is in fact the ancient city of Atlantis, with debates around this raging for many centuries.
