Santorini is one of the most photogenic places on earth, surely! This popular holiday hot spot hosts cruise passengers and guests enjoying a longer stay at any number of beautiful villages distributed across the island. Larger locales include Akrotiri in the south, through Thera (Fira/Thira) in the centre, all the way up to Oia (Ia) in the north. The island is not huge and may be traversed by bus or car easily, but during the high season may feature a surprising amount of traffic.
Outrageously popular with honeymooners and couples looking for a bit of romance, Santorini has plenty of appeal for families, too. If you're cruising the Eastern Mediterranean or the Greek Islands, it's a must on your itinerary. Look for vineyards and luxurious boutique accommodations for the best experience.
Planning Your Cruise
Make sure you try the local wine and find yourself a great seat for the spectacular sunset views over the caldera.
If you're visiting by cruise, try to find an itinerary with more time ashore in Santorini, there's a lot to experience across a seemingly small island.
