No holiday to Santorini is complete without visiting its volcano. Once upon a time, the island of Santorini was in fact more circular. Its western side harboured a volcano that lay dormant for eons until a series of eruptions, the last one being in the 16th century, changed its morphology forever and created the crescent shape that stands today. Seize the opportunity to set foot onto the remnant of this natural phenomenon, walk up to the crater and revel in a sensational feeling of timelessness. The views onto the inhabited part of Santorini from the Nea Kameni volcano peak will reveal the staggering volcanic strata that form the Santorinian Caldera.
