Santorini, Greek Islands

The Greek Islands see swarms of tourists year round visiting for the incredible weather, authentic food and to witness some of the most incredible views and sites in the world. After visiting Santorini (officially known as Thira) I can safely say that this island is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. Santorini is what remains from a volcano eruption that wiped out much of the island. Santorini is accessible by boat or plane (one of the few Greek Islands with a small airport and runway) and is definitely a must visit destination whilst visiting Greece and the Greek Islands.
