Welcome to Santorini


Plus (whew!) excellent wineries and quality restaurants. Multicoloured beaches, hot springs, evening cruises and more.

But, behind the scenes it’s another matter. For all its exposure and popularity, the island is now at bursting point; it’s being smothered with development. Luxury digs. Infinity pools. Instagrammers. And too much love. Given the massive crowds, including cruise passengers, who flock here during the holiday season, the island’s infrastructure – roads, garbage, water, and ferry port – struggles to cope.

Santorini Wine Tasting, Vineyard Small-Group Tour

Book your daytime or sunset tour and start your experience with a hotel pickup. Your destinations depend on your chosen tour.Daytime Tour (available April 1 to November 15):Travel by air-conditioned minibus to the first of the three traditional wineries and, on route, learn from your guide about wine production on Santorini and the varietals that you may try during the day.Producing some of the most distinctive wine in the Mediterranean, the island owes its success largely to aspa, a unique blend of volcanic soil that lends its wines a rich minerality and light flavor.
