What makes Santorini so special, is the land itself. Once a big island, it’s actually now an archipelago of five islands, thanks to several volcanic eruptions that broke it up over the past couple thousand years. The biggest of the five islands is Thira, though most people just call this one Santorini. The other four islands are Thirasia, Aspronisi, Nea and Palea Kameni.
Instagrammers love Santorini’s photogenic blue domes and dramatic landscapes. Elegant villages like Oia, well known for its crimson sunsets, black beaches, dazzling panoramas, ancient cities and multicolored cliffs soar out of a sea-drowned volcanic crater make Santorini the supermodel of the Greek islands, a unique place instantly recognizable around the world. With all of the views you could possibly imagine, it’s not surprising why Santorini is on so many travelers’ bucket lists.
But Santorini has all this and more. It has an exciting nightlife, some of the world's best wine, exquisite local gastronomy, a perfect climate and a submerged volcanic crater with a breathtaking caldera. It is the ideal place to visit, whether you are coming for your honeymoon, with your family, alone or with friends.

On coasts and islands of central and southern Greece, where the climate is Mediterranean, winter is mild and quite rainy, while summers are sunny and hot.
On the islands, during winter the wind often blows; precipitation often occurs at night and in the early morning. On the islands, snowfalls are rare, and generally occur only in the northern ones, during the most intense cold spells.
Spring is pleasant and sunny in most of Greece. The days with some rainfall become less and less frequent. In summer, in the Aegean Sea the Meltemi, a northerly wind typical of the warmest months (July and August), often blows, and even if the sky is clear.
