Fast Facts

Santorini’s actual name is Thira, an archipelago of five Greek islands in the glistening Aegean and Mediterranean seas. The island lies in the water-filled caldera of a large volcano, believed to have erupted over 3,700 years ago, bringing its thriving Minoan civilization to an abrupt halt.
