1 – Santorini
If Greece is the most magical place on earth, Santorini is its magic wand. The amber skyline blending with the azure seascape at the horizon and the absolutely stunning whitewashed Cycladic dwellings gleaming like gold in the afterglow of dusk, Santorini is not just exquisite but spellbinding. One of the most beautiful and romantic islands in the world, officially Thira in Greek, Santorini is gracefully perched on the cliff of the mountain 200kms south-east of Greece mainland in the Aegean Sea. Unparalleled beauty of hilltop villages, excellent wineries, some of the Cyclades finest dining experiences, the sandy multi-coloured beaches in Red, Black and White, rich antiquity and the Greek hospitality are a few of the many other reasons which make Santorini the most popular and best Greek island. The sunset of Oia, the black pebbled beach of Kamari, the bustling markets and white cobblestones streets of Fira, the Venetian castle and Byzantine churches of Pyrgos—Santorini’s charm is irresistible.
