Vistas, Villages & More in Santorini
Journey across an unforgettable island landscape and visit a spectacular black-sand beach, a clifftop monastery and more!
Take in the one-of-a-kind sights of Santorini*, from the island’s rugged volcanic landscapes to verdant vineyards producing some of the world’s best wines. Your adventure begins by traveling north to 2 picturesque towns, Oia and Imerovigli, to get a feel for life on this idyllic Aegean island. You’ll have time to wander the narrow cobblestone streets and admire the unique Cycladic architecture, then walk along a caldera for stunning views of Santorini’s iconic coastline and Skaros Rock, once a medieval fortress. Continue down to sea level to a beach covered in black volcanic pebbles. At the beach, you’ll savor a lunch specially prepared for DreamTrippers, and have plenty of time to swim, sunbathe or snap pics.
Ready to go up high? You’ll travel to the highest part of the island, Profitis Ilias. This mountain is home to an 18th-century monastery and its small chapel and museum. Here you can sample — and perhaps purchase — the wares produced by the monks.
