TraveLibro Greece Santorini Featured City
Mention Santorini to anyone and they are immediately taken back to a land of whitewashed houses, blue roofs, a sense of romance in the air and breathtaking scenic beauty! This crescent-shaped island, also known as Thira in Greek, is truly a gem of the Aegean Sea. Very few though, know that Santorini is still a complex of islands with active volcanic activity with the crater in the sea. These islands themselves were formed over time due to a result of intense volcanic activity—12 eruptions in total. This however, does not deter tourists from coming in hordes and descending upon this picturesque and stunningly beautiful archipelago, especially the honeymoon traffic. Its reputation as the most romantic destination in the world also makes it a popular choice for a wedding destination. Visit the famous island of Oia, Fira and Caldera and exchange kisses and profess your undying love on a sunset dinner cruise. Swim through the healing, warm waters and see the evil looking pieces of hot magma on a Volcano and Hot Springs tour. End it with a donkey ride and an experience wine tasting, especially the Rose!
