Are you ready to visit Paradise??
To see the most popular and stunning sunset in the world?
To swim in the Red beach, into the dark blue water and under the red and black mountain? To spend one week in the most beautiful and awarded island of Greece? Santorini is what remains after an enormous volcanic explosion. In the west side of the island we will visit the capital, Thera, with the traditional white Cycladic architecture houses, the ‘’Calderimia’’. In the north side of Santorini, in Oia, we will admire the very famous houses built into the rock and of course, the ‘’sunset of Oia’’ which is awarded as the best sunset worldwide. The beautiful colours that gives the red calcined sun while it immersed in the sea is one of the most spectacular picture in the world! Glorious sunsets are Santorini's claim-to-fame and are not to be missed! Moreover, we will have the chance to come close to the volcano crater of Santorini, called Nea Kameni and swim in the warm and sulphurous waters. We will maake treasur hunts in the five wonderful Venetian Castles and important archaeological sites and dance all night in the most famous clubs of Santorini, with the intense night and cultural night. Let's find out together why the most famous poet in Greece, Odysseas Elitis, was inspired with the beauty of this island and wrote his poem ''Ode to Santorini'' and if it's true what people claim, that all travelers should once in lifetime visit Santorini.
