Things to Do in Santorini

Santorini, the popular island in Greece sees a remarkable number of tourists each year who come to chill by its pretty seashore and enjoy the gorgeous views that are everywhere. Its quaint whitewashed villages add a sense of serenity and the two main towns here, Fira and Oia are perched at the top of an underwater caldera.

An island that goes back to Minoan times, Santorini today is shaped by the events of the past, particularly the volcanic eruption in 16th century BC that affected its rugged landscape significantly. Today, Santorini sightseeing includes trips to Akrotiri, a Bronze Age settlement which has remained preserved under ash from volcanic eruption. Other things to do in Santorini include visits to the Red Beach surrounded by volcanic rocks or the Santorini Caldera which offers some splendid panoramic seaside views. There are churches, beaches and ruins of ancient monuments that draw people as well as museums which allow visitors a glimpse into the prehistoric past. Here’s a list of things to do in Santorini.
