Santorini/Cyclades/Greece , 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

Santorini
This island is quintessentially Greek like no other. Black volcanic rock juts out of the sea and 300 m into the air to make for a fascinating contrast to the gleaming white houses. Discover the original Santorini in the winding alleys of Megalochori and Pyrgos*, or enjoy unique views of the coast on a catamaran ride around the caldera*.

OUR TIP:
Simply take the plunge.
Underwater worlds shaped by volcanic force and submerged archways and columns: Santorini and Zakynthos are wonderful diving locations. Our travel concierge will be happy to organise a personal diving experience* for you.
