Santorini Greece

The Place of the Gods

Santorini Greece, Sunset, Caldera
If you willing to travel the distance it is definitely worth it.  Santorini Greece is a heavenly place that will sweep you off your feet literally.  Santorini's layout is basically the result of an enormous volcanic eruption.  It sits on top of 980 foot cliffs and is surrounded by the medditeranian sea!  It remains as the most active volcanic center of the south Aegean Volcanic Arc. Not to worry the last eruption was in 1950!

Where to Stay

Perivolas Hotel:  Of all the options in Santorini this place doesn't get enough credit or attention.  It is the place to go if you want the best "cave style" hotel.  Each room has its own balcony that overlooks that caldera.  The service is top notch and everyone is there to make your experience a little brighter. The infinity pool has a view that will make you feel like you are on top of the world.  This place has a ton of stairs and winding passageways.

Where to Eat

Ambrosia Restaurant- Has the best food and the best outdoor views period.  This tiny restaurant overlooks the water and has food that will want to make you splurge for a second trip.  They serve all the Mediterranean favorites including; fresh fish, pasta and don't forget to try the strawberry soup with homemade vanilla ice cream!  If that's not enough they also have a huge selection of European wines.  This has to be your destination for date night.

What to do

If relaxing by the pool and soaking up some sun isn't enough for you and you are looking for some adventure make sure to check out the cliff jumping off the tiny Church in Amoudi Bay.  Be super prepared and bring water shoes to protect your feet from the sharp rocks!
