Cheap flights to Santorini

If you like picture perfect whitewashed Greek villages overlooking turquoise seas, beautiful boutique hotels, and some of the world’ most stunning sunset views, then look no further than the Greek island of Santorini. 

This Greek gem is definitely one of the Mediterranean’s chicest islands and as Santorini travel guides will tell you is a place that entices visitors back year after year. Remember all those famous postcards of blindingly white Greek churches overlooking the sea? Well, they were taken here.

At first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking the island is little more than a barren rock, and you’d be right. Santorini was created way back in 1600 BC by a volcanic explosion that blew apart half the island and wiped out Europe’s first civilisation, the Minoans. Today, Santorini is the world’s only inhabited caldera with beautiful, bustling, white villages packed tightly above the 260 metre volcano walls. One look and you can understand why many people claim it to be the lost island of Atlantis.
