Santorini´s ancient name was Thira, and some believe it was the legendary island of Atlantis. Called kallaite (the fairest one) by the Greeks, Santorini is beautiful for its black sand beaches, limestone cliffs and vineyards, as well as for its dozens of lazy inviting villages filled with whitewashed architecture.
Tour the island by jeep to explore the ruins of ancient Thera and the charming port town of Oia to the north. In the south, Akrotiri, the town buried in ash around 1550 BC is now being excavated.
