Planning a trip to Santorini? Here are just a few of the many things you can do while visiting this beautiful island.
Known as the Crown Jewel of Greece, Santorini is a magical island that is full of charm and mystery. It is the only island with more donkeys than people, more wine than water, and more churches than houses.
The island is surrounded by hundreds of white-washed houses, a volcanic cliff, and the rich, blue Mediterranean ocean that complements the blue domes of the churches. It is indeed a sight to behold.
We’ve curated a shortlist of things you can do while on your trip.
