Santorini Holidays – an experience you will never forget

Most Greeks believe that Santorini is the most magnificent island of all. Massive numbers of people visit this island every year in order to see the waterlogged caldera, the epicenter of what is commonly thought to have been the largest volcanic eruption ever. If you wish to take in the full splendor of the caldera, you should make a point of arriving by slow ferry.
