Santorini spectacular scenery

Impressive landscapes and stunning sunsets

Santorini holidays are renowned as the most beautiful throughout Greece and its impressive landscapes have fronted post cards and calendars worldwide. This stunning Greek island was blown apart many thousands of years ago by a volcanic explosion leaving a sea filled crater (caldera) in the middle and creating the Santorini we know and love today.

The stunning sunsets of this spectacular island are world famous and part of the attraction for many Santorini weddings and honeymoons each year. This is an island of romance and relaxation containing some of the most impressive views you will ever see. The whitewashed stone buildings and blue domed churches are a spectacular sight set against the red, black and green steep cliff edges.

The capital of Santorini is Fira(also known as Thira) and one of the most extraordinary capitals in the world. Fira itself is set over nine hundred meters above the harbour and is so steep it can only be accessed by a long walk uphill, taking in the amazing sights on a journey by cable car or a very traditional donkey ride. There are no cars at all in the capital due to the location, making it perfect for ambling around the maze of tiny cobbled streets and soaking up the splendid views that you cannot get away from on holidays in Santorini. The capital is very chic and filled with jewellery shops, boutiques and trendy cocktail bars contributing to the upmarket reputation of the island. Evenings in the capital can vary between a romantic meal in a taverna looking out over the harbour, visiting the cocktail bars or dancing until dawn in the numerous nightclubs.
