Santorini Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia


Officially known by its ancient name of Thera,
the striking volcanic islands of Santorini is one of the most visited Greek islands. Once a much larger, single island, Santorini
as it looks today is the result of a massive volcanic explosion known as the Minoan or
Theran explosion which took place around 3,600 years ago. The explosion left the steep sided
caldera on which the main settlements now perch as well as the deep lagoon that provides
the island with its safe harbours. Cruise ships travel to Santorini from all over the
Agean and the Mediterranean and sail across the flooded caldera. Santorini is a world famous destination that
features some of the most striking Mediterranean architecture. The distinctive white washed
houses are the visible portions of houses that include rooms built into cliff side caves. Blue domed churches are scattered through the towns and pathways and steps are traversed by keen eyed tourist on their way to the next stunning view or taverna. Away from the main towns that roost on the
cliff-tops, there is plenty to see. Numerous beaches at the base of the cliffs have warm
waters to swim in and unusually coloured sands. Elsewhere, small boat harbours with great
fish tavernas close by and some amazing roads are great options for when you get tired of
gazing at the horizon. Sunset is a special time here and thousands
come just to witness the sun sinking into the water from the numerous vantage points
around the towns. The views from a thousand feet above the water are simply stunning.

  1. I've been there; it's romantic and stuff, but it's awesome if you go with your girlfriend (sunsets) or friends (nightlife)

  2. Such a gorgeous place! I was just there! 😀 I actually loved it so much that I decided to live there for a month.

  3. The only thing I didn't like in the video was the spoken English with such a hard accent to understand. That's a thing you should definitely improve.

  4. I would love to go but I see hotel prices expensive Santorini is my go to but I'll be up for different islands can some ppl recommend me hotels any ideas

  5. Hey guys, thinking about visiting Santorini, does anyone have any good hotel recommendations? The ones that look straight out to the sea (please do mention all 5 star hotels, regardless of the price, just want an idea even if it is expensive). Thanks! This channel is amazing, good job guys

  6. Warm water? That was't my experience. The water was cold in 3 beaches I went but the weather was quite warm, so it wasn't as bad.

  7. Maybe you know already. Have a look at those two videos, Santorini, Yuri palma, and 36 hours in Santorini, Sam Kolder. Incredibly, two among best worldwide filmmaker have been in Santorini in the same period.

  8. such a gorgeous place the video does it justice if you have the chance to go then do it I loved it took a day tour of the island as I was staying in crete at the time and I wanted to go to athens but I couldn't go as it was on the day I left so my family decided we should go to santorini

  13. Em agosto de 2016, eu e meu parceiro fomos para Santorini para uma semana. Hospedamos no Pegasus Suites Hotel *****stars. ilha é fascinante, é exótica, o branco e azul fazem detalhes exuberantes, nas residencias e hotelarias. A água do mar é tão azul que reflete a cor do mar com o branco e, dá vida a fotos e vídeos. Foi uma experiência maravilhosa.

  14. My dream is to save up enough money to go to Greece, Italy, France, Norway and Canada. Maybe USA or Hawaii along the way?

  15. I've traveled to many countries, and Greece is at the top. Santorini was stunning. Should be on everyone's list of must-see places!

  16. Santorini is not my favourite island στην Ελλαδα, but the view from Caldera is absolutely outstanding, marvelous, gorgeous and all the other great adjectives a place can deserve.

  17. The blue dome of the church have been in my head since I was young and I dreamed about it. I hope I will be able to see them

  18. It's so sad that such a beautiful place goes through so hard times. I'm proud of being a Greek but also ashamed. Ashamed because of how we treat minorities, ashamed of the people we choose to lead us. Ashamed of how we don't protect our land (I mean the environment and our sea).
