Santorini (Thira or Thera) is the southernmost member of the Cyclades islands in Greece. It is an ancient island well known for one of the largest volcanic eruptions in history. Archaeological excavations show that the island has been inhabited since the Neolothic times. After the volcano eruption the central part of the island sank. During the 7th and 6th centuries BC Santorini experienced a high commercial development and became one of the most important trade centers of the Aegean due to its geographical position.
Mysteries of the sleeping volcano, gorgeous beaches and amazing sunsets compose the beauty of this island and today Santorini is one of the best destinations of the world.
