Santorini

Highly recommended
Santorini is the most spectacular of the Cyclades; arriving by boat in its ancient crater overwhelmed by the sea thousands of years ago is an unforgettable experience. The natural circle is surrounded by giant cliffs in a variety of hues resulting from their volcanic origin: black lava, purplish-grey ash, reddish clinker, and pale pumice. High above stand scarlet villages. The jumble of houses forming Thira and its surrounding hamlets is remarkable, on the edge of the caldera, which may be explored by boat.
