Santorini is a beautiful Greek island that provides much to its tourists, mainly its archaeological sites from the Minoan era. Its extraordinary landscape is due to the eruption of a marine volcano. It is strongly recommended that you visit Fira, Imerovigli or Oia known locally as the towns on the cliffs, here you will find tea houses and shops that provide stunning views. Alternatively you could visit the ancient town of Akrotiri which was buried when the volcano erupted 3500 years ago. You can walk around the street quarters and see what the buildings were like here over 3000 years ago.
