Santorini, whose capital is Thera (or Fira), is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200km (120 miles) southeast of Greece on the mainland. It is the largest island of a small circular archipelago that bears the same name and is the rest of a volcanic caldera. The island forms the southernmost member of the Cyclades island group. The municipality of Santorini includes the inhabited islands of Santorini and Therasia and the uninhabited islands of Nea Kameni, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi and Christiana.
The capital of Santorini, Thera (or Fira) is the main tourist center and an authentic maze of white-painted streets filled with jewelery and craft shops.
The most beautiful city of Santorini is Oía, at the northern end of the island, with a magical setting, especially at sunset, when the colorful houses are bathed in an orange aura. The view is absolutely unforgettable.
Santorini Island is famous for dramatically beautiful views such as breathtaking sunsets from the town of Oia, the town of Thira and of course its own active volcano.
The naturally fantastic beaches, such as Perissa beach, perhaps the best beach in Santorini, Kamari's black pebble beach, white sand beach and red beach.
Santorini's cuisine is based mainly on the island's own agricultural products. These products, nourished by volcanic soil, the bright sun and humidity of the Aegean Sea, have a very unique flavor. This results in high quality ingredients that are used to cook the delicious, healthy and delicious dishes that can be found in many taverns and restaurants.
Traditional dishes include fava beans, peas, tomatoes, eggplants, stuffed courgettes, cooked capers, fresh cheese, sausages, wild rabbit with an egg cheese and sauce, brantada and saffron bread toasts.
Santorini has a warm Mediterranean climate. In summer, hot and dry days are usually relieved by the breeze, especially in the northern and coastal areas. The nights are cold. Winters are relatively mild. From November to March is the rainy season.
