Santorini is one of the most famous of the Cycladic islands, with its world renowned blue domes, white washed buildings alongside the caldera, and its stunning views of the Aegean Sea.
I would advise going in the low season as it is still suitably warm but with the added bonus of less crowds, as lets face it, Santorini is a VERY popular destination, as well as a stop on cruises. Here are 5 reasons why you should add Santorini to your travel plans this year.
Sunsets like no other
Santorini has had some of the most sensational sunsets that I have ever experienced. Whether you catch them in Oia or from the comfort of your hot tub in Imerovigli, they are certainly stunning!
It is a romantic destination, perfect for honeymoon, celebrating anniversaries or just spending quality time together.
Much of Santorini is built on a caldera rim. It is so photogenic, but also very hilly. The views from all over the island are just incredible combined with the azure hues of the Aegean Sea.
Food and wine
The food is amazing and so is the wine! I highly recommend going for one of the wine tasting experiences. All over the island you will find delicious Greek food and super fresh seafood.
Greek architecture, and specifically that of the Cyclades is unique in its white-painted houses and cobbled lanes. So pretty to see!
