Reshaped by volcanic activity, the rugged yet enchanting Santorini beckons all seafaring souls in the Aegean Sea.

Visitors to this breathtaking and romantic Cyclades archipelago will gaze at the whitewashed cubiform houses sitting cliffside and hovering over the water.

Santorini is technically an active volcano, and perhaps the only volcano on the planet with its crater situated in the sea. But don't worry too much; the last eruption was 3600 years ago. Instead, couples and tourists should explore, taste the local wine, and lounge in the sun on black sand beaches. As the sun sets dramatically, visitors will find a taverna or bar and toast their impeccable taste in travel destinations.
