History and Culture in Santorini

Santorini’s intrigue reaches deep into the past, with the fascinating site of Akrotiri  displaying a Minoan city destroyed by the volcanic eruption of 1613 BC. In Fira, the impressive Museum of Prehistoric Thera helps piece together the story of ancient Akrotiri. Although Santorini is a rather small island it is overrun with religious monuments including chapels, churches and monasteries that are scattered throughout the villages. They all boast a long history and unique holy icons, some are tiny chapels dug into the rock. Many are simple, whitewashed churches adorned with blue domes. And others are remarkable cathedrals and glorious monasteries that stand out for their majestic characteristics. Visit and explore five glorious castles, or their ruins, which extend from the upper to the southernmost part of the island. These landmarks of Santorini offer, unique unrivalled views on the volcano and the neighbouring islands.
 

Family holidays in Santorini

Although a popular destination for couples and newlyweds Santorini can offer a great family friendly villa location. Tour the volcano by boat, check out Monolithos beach, a family friendly beach in Santorini, with lots of sand and shallow water. Perissa and Kamari also have pretty beaches well worth a visit. There is a small water park in Perissa, with 3 pools, 3 water slides, and a kids play area. Other interesting activities would be the archaeological site in Akrotiri and a visit to the Industrial Tomato Museum and of course, do not forget the ice cream and crêpes just waiting to be sampled!
