hat can one say about Santorini (also known as Thera or Thira), without the risk of wronging one of the most famous, stunning and unique islands in the world? Ranked among the top 20 destinations in the world one must see before dying by the Lonely Planet and rated the second best honeymoon idyll in the world by 101 Honeymoons, first of the world’s best islets by BBC Traveller, third amongst the world’s most romantic destinations by VeryFirstTo.com, and the list goes on and on.
This is the island that redefines the words “breathtaking view” and openhandedly offers some of the most magical sunsets in the world (yes, there is even a ranking for that, the Top 10 Best Sunsets in the World by National Geographic).
This is the island of ultra-premium, super-niche boutique hotels, which place Santorini firmly at the top of Conde Nast Traveller’s lists each summer, and the island of millions of tourists from all across the planet.
This is the island of uncontrollable romance and wild nightlife all in one; the island of volcanic eruptions and mind-blowing architecture; the island of great history and an even greater future.
This is the island you have already fallen in love with before even setting foot on its soil, tasting its wines, strolling along its stone-paved alleys, feeling so small gazing into the endless blue from the infinity pools atop the Caldera and – of course – photographing its world-renowned sunset.
This is Santorini, the island of holiday dreams come true.
Greece's most precious gem
