There are innumerable reasons why visitors flock to Santorini, a Greek island that’s home to unparalleled sunsets, charming hilltop villages and impossibly fresh cuisine.
Santorini is perhaps the most famous of all the Greek islands, but it’s well worth following the crowds to find out why. From the moment you spot its soaring, craggy cliffs from the ferry – capped by blinding-white villages and lapped by deep-blue water that fills an enormous, submerged volcano crater beneath you – it’s hard to not be enchanted by this superstar of the Cyclades.
