Santorini

Greece

Santorini, a regular on “most beautiful islands in the world” lists, is truly singular. From its rocky perch 300 metres above the Caldera, the result of a volcanic eruption that carved out much of the area’s islands, catch a postcard-worthy sunset with a loved one. Walk the cobblestone streets of the ancient mountain-top village of Pyrgos home to 48 churches,  blue-domed rooftops and whitewashed cubist houses, or visit the hillside village of Oia and meditate in cliff-perched churches, afterwards sampling zucchini Santorinio Sfougato and delicious lamb burgers at the Taverna. Need more? Immerse yourself in the remains of a Venetian castle in Pyrgos, go horseback riding in Exo Gonia, or travel to one of the many vineyards throughout the island. Just don’t forget to go to the beach. Whether it’s the idyllic Perissa, the black pebble beach of Kamari, or the adventurous “red beach” — you just can’t go wrong.
