The gem of the Aegean Sea, Santorini Island's crescent shape creates its breathtakingly long inner bay, called the caldera. The remarkable cliffs of Santorini rise majestically from the caldera to a height of 300 meters, offering a spectacular view of the sea. The island's unique volcanic evolution, waterways, and architecture make it the most romantic island of the Cyclades. Santorini vacation packages put you at the nexus of fine beaches, volcanic hot springs, fusion cuisine, active nightlife, and friendly culture.
