Important Santorini Sightseeing

Santorini, the most cosmopolitan island of Greece, has many villages, beaches and sights to see. The best villages to see in Santorini are found on the caldera side of the island. Oia, Fira, Imerovigli and Firostefani are the most impressive villages of Santorini, constructed with traditional style on the edge of the caldera and offering wonderful view to the Aegean Sea. The best beaches of Santorini are found on the southern side of the island and include Kamari, Perissa and Perivolos.

Apart from villages and beaches, Santorini also has many interesting sights to visit. The most famous archaeological site is the Minoan Site of Akrotiri, an ancient town that flourished from trade and was covered by volcanic ash when the volcano of Santorini erupted in about 1500 BC. This volcano can be visited today by boat from the old port of Fira and is surely one of the main things to see on the island.
