Experience endless miles of aquamarine coastline, sun-bleached ancient ruins, strong feta and stronger ouzo. Enchant your senses with its strong history of ancient sights as you tread the cobbled Byzantine footpaths.
Embracing a history both geographical and mythical, this natural wonder in the endless Aegean blue, was formed by a cataclysmic volcanic eruption 3,600 years ago or should you choose to believe it, the wrath of the Gods that created this mesmerizing crescent moon shaped piece of land. Whitewashed towns that cling to the cliffs, views of Thirasia and the lagoon, charming Thira’s fresh seafood and sunsets.
