Santorini boasts a dramatic landscape that compares to none other. It is a Mecca for couples and newlyweds, that is distinguished for its imposing Caldera views, breathtaking sunsets, luxurious, cave-like hotels, and white-washed buildings. The island's mediterranean beauty immediately puts you in a mood for vacations and authentic Greek cuisine.
Santorini's rich volcanic soil nurtures the local agricultural products with a truly unique taste. Many vegetables grow in abundance on the island including fava, white aubergines, capers, and cherry tomatoes. Many also call it "the wine island" since many grape varieties can grow on its soil like Assyrtiko, Athiri, Aidani, Mavrotragano, Nykteri and Vinsanto.
