Many lovers and artists have been lured and were inspired by Santorini’s transcendental beauty. No wonder this place has been the dream destination for honeymooners and the set for movies like Tomb Raider and Summer Lovers. Because of the unique style and design of this place that makes the whitewashed houses dangle from the cliffs, a lot of tourists are attracted to come here. Along the way, you’ll experience the Greek hospitality and will sense the patriotism of the people, which shows in the “blue and white” painting of almost all houses and establishments, similar to the color of their flag.
The village of Imerovigli in Santorini is famous for its breathtaking sunset, the reason this place is called the “balcony to the Aegean”. It is positioned at the highest most central area of the caldera. The Skaros is the most essential and a must-visit attraction here. There are two castles here called the Epano Kastro (upper castle) and Kato Kastro (lower castle). Various activities are also available like the cruise along the caldera, diving/ snorkeling in the deep volcanic waters, and walking/hiking along stunning paths and picturesque villages.
