Santorini

Radiant pearl of the Aegean.

Discover on foot Santorini’s picture-perfect idyll. Typical Cycladic architecture with colourful blue and white houses awaits, but first and foremost a fascinating scenery, created approximately 3600 years ago by an enormous volcanic eruption called the ‚Minoan eruption’. The combination of volcanic cone, cliff coast and black lava beaches offers an interesting backdrop for diverse walking tours. Romantic villages perched on the edge of a caldera, idyllic coastal villages to explore and not forgetting a boat trip over to the ‚sister island’ Thirassia, which awaits your visit.

Wo andere nur mit dem Kreuzfahrtschiff kurz anlegen, hatten wir eine Woche
Santorini heißt: Blauweiße Häuser, alles sauber und frisch, nette Leute, die sich auch mit Deutsch Mühe geben. Wir hatten nichts auszusetzen, hervorragende Organisation und sogar Heimvorteil: Wir hatten eine Betreuerin aus dem Osten! Sie kam gebürtig aus Plauen und hat uns prima betreut.
