This South European country on the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula with an archipelago of about 2,000 islands, borders the Aegean Sea, the Ionia Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. 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 and picturesque Oia’s stylish boutiques and jewellery shops await you.
At the highest point of the Caldera in the idyllic village of Imerovigli.
