Santorini Greece

What Is So Special About the Scenic Island of Santorini?

The island of Santorini used to be called Thera, and it has been inhabited since the Bronze age. Some believe that the ancient civilization that resided in Thera was the same as the version of Atlantis described by the philosopher Plato in his dialogues Timaeus and Critias.

Whether or not Santorini was the site of an advanced ancient civilization, today the island is bustling with activity and it’s one of the most frequently visited holiday destinations in Greece.

The museum of Prehistoric Thira is one of the most famous places containing information about the Minoan civilization, while places like Oia have some of the most scenic and amazing hiking trails in all of Greece. If you want to check out the best foods and drinks on the island, you should definitely consider places like the brand new Gaia Winery, the Domaine Singalas and Kamari Beach, which is filled with bars, hotels and awesome restaurants.
