Santorini probably has the most spectacular landscape of the Greek Cyclades islands. It is part of a volcano that exploded 3500 years ago, the crater of which collapsed, allowing the sea to wash in. Today, the edges of this volcano rise more than 300 metres above the water. The white-washed houses of the island's capital city, Thira, at the edge of the crater, can often only be reached by ascending steep stairways. An overwhelming view down to the blue Aegean makes the steep climb worth your while. The fine lava beaches in the south and southwestern section of the island are too. Tips for day trips: the excavations of the Minoan city of Akrotiri and the small village of Oia on the west side of the island, where you can see the most beautiful sunsets on the island.
