The island of Santorini has a pretty explosive past. It’s perched over the remains of a much larger land mass that sank almost 4,000 years ago when a volcano blew its top, leaving the blue caldera and steep cliffs behind.

It is these cliffs and the flooded caldera that have become Santorini’s iconic calling card, and the first stop on your Santorini tour. Here’s your first bit of trivia: The whitewashed homes that appear on so many postcards and photographs are larger than they appear on the outside. They’re partially built into existing cliffside caves, and feature some of the most distinctive Mediterranean architecture you’ll ever see.

Santorini sightseeing will no doubt bring you up the stairs and pathways to the blue-domed churches that stand guard over the island. From there, you can take in the exquisite view of the caldera and harbor below. If you get a little weary of the spectacular sights, don’t worry; there’s plenty of things to do besides wander the various clifftop towns. If you head down to water level, you can soak in the warm surf, explore Santorini’s many beaches, go for a drive along winding roads, or go on a fishing expedition from one of the harbors.

At the end of the day, gather with the residents and visitors atop the cliff towns and watch the sun drop into the ocean. You’ll never see a view quite like it.

  1. such a gorgeous place the video does it justice if you have the chance to go then do it I loved it took a day tour of the island as I was staying in crete at the time and I wanted to go to athens but I couldn't go as it was on the day I left so my family decided we should go to santorini

  2. Maybe you know already. Have a look at those two videos, Santorini, Yuri palma, and 36 hours in Santorini, Sam Kolder. Incredibly, two among best worldwide filmmaker have been in Santorini in the same period.

  3. Hey guys, thinking about visiting Santorini, does anyone have any good hotel recommendations? The ones that look straight out to the sea (please do mention all 5 star hotels, regardless of the price, just want an idea even if it is expensive). Thanks! This channel is amazing, good job guys
