What to see in Santorini, Thira, Greece
It is a fabulous volcanic island with an antique minoan city. Some people think Santorini is the home of the lost city of Atlantis...
The quite landscape and the people make the place a real paradise, I think. I have been there in May and t wasn't crowded, what is again a huge plus. There is nothing but the wild nature outside the small towns.
One thing yu shouldn't miss is renting a donkey and taking a ride in the town, not very comfortable, but a lot of fun. :)
