Overview

Many reasons have made this dream island globally famous and many of us have seen magnificent picture of it.
Scientists relate Santorini to the mythical Atlantis.Also,June Verne has made Santorini famous  through his novels “Twenty thousand leagues  under the sea” and  “The mysterious island”.
Santorini is an ancient island,where the life of the volcano has significantly influenced the island's structure and the lifestyle of its inhabitans through-out history. Another reason that has made the island well known is the view of the “Caldera”,which is  one of the most fascinating  sceneries on the plane planet.

Santorini is considered to be the lost Atlantis…
The present-day crescent shape of the island is a consequence of a volcano activity during prehistoric times. The island itself owes its very existence to the volcano eruption.
The marvelous dry climate and unbroken sunshine create year around conditions which are perfect for observation, photographs and videos under an extraordinary variety of natural lights and colors while gives you the exceptional advantage of reaching the interior of the volcano by boat.

Taking the speed boat across and joining the professional guide who will let you in on all of the history is a firm favorite amongst holiday makers.

Enjoy the fabulous and breath- taking views!

The history of Santorini has the advantage of continuous evolution and configuration by itself.In the past the island was not a  part  of  the Cyclades island group and it used to be a single round island,called Strogili until the eruption.
The first habitants of Santorini were the Pre-Greeks who appeared around 3000 BC.In 1613 BC there  was  a huge explosion of the volcano.The Finios people  were driven there by the beauty of the island around 1300 BC.
Franks came to Thira in 1204 AD and named it Santorini.(Saint-Irene)

The island has been widely known for its unique breath-taking view, beauty and colours:  Black sand, white washed houses, red cliffs and the deep blue Aegean Sea.
