About the destination

Santorini is a Greek volcanic island. It is probably the most famous of the Greek islands because of the famous monument called the Three Bells of Fira. It is also called “The Mythical Island”, because according to the legend, this is where the City of Atlantis was located before sinking to the bottom of the sea.
