SANTORINI is truly a magical island. Part of the Cyclades Islands in the Aegean Sea. Devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century that shaped its rugged landscape forever. The towns of Fira and Oia cling to the cliffs above an underwater CALDERA (crater). Beaches are made up of black, red and white lava sand and pebbles.
SANTORINIS architecture of white washed houses are in complete harmony to the volcanic scenery.
Among the narrow village paths you will find the iconic blue domed churches that match with sea and sky.
The island is also home to a small but flourishing wine industry, with many vineyards to visit for a tasting session and dinner. The vines are unique as grown in a basket shape to protect the fruits from the winds.
The famous SANTORINI sunset has the tourists surrounding the Caldera every evening and a massive applause is heard as the ball of firedisappears into the sea.
The flight is approx 3hrs 40mins direct from most UK airports and the small boutique hotels offer a great bed & breakfast, with a 7 night break starting from £350pp. The season runs from late April to late Oct.
The choice of restaurants is large with most offering traditional Greek cuisine MOUSSAKA, GYROS, HALLOUMI, TZATZIKI, SOULAKI,and of course all your holiday favourites BURGER, PIZZA, STEAK, FISH. The average price for 2 course dinner with a bottle of wine is around £20pp.
For a day at the beach all the restaurants offer free sun beds if you buy a couple of beers and lunch.

As with all holidays/travel arrangement made through GO TRAVEL we will guide you through all procedures. A lot of passengers who book own arrangements or through online companies have found holidays very stressful when they have failed to correctly complete all steps needed.
