Day 3 - Sunday: Santorini / 08h00 – 21h00
At 08h00 we sail for our last destination, Santorini.Itis the most active volcanic centre in the Aegean Arc, though what remains today is largely acaldera. The name Santorini was given to it by the Venetians in the 13th century and is a referencetoSaint Irene. Before then it was called Kallisti, Strongili or Thera. The island was the site of one of thelargest volcanic eruptions of the last several thousand years when it erupted cataclysmically about3,500 years ago. The eruption left a large caldera surrounded by ash deposits hundreds of feetdeep, and its effects may have indirectly led to the collapse of the Minoan civilization on the islandof Crete, to the south. It has also been said that the sunsets in Santorini are the best in the world……From the Caldera breathtaking views of the volcano & neighbouring islands. From the east milesof dark sandy or pebbled beaches. Everywhere one sees small domed churches and remnants ofdays gone by.This is Santorini seen through the eyes of people who know & love it ...
