Santorini is a favorite travel destination for many of our readers. It has enough things to do and must-see attractions to fill anyone’s travel itinerary. To help get you started, here’s a “top 10” list.

1. See the sunset from Oia

The village of Oia is located on the island’s northwest edge. The sunset here is world-famous. The village itself is both beautiful and picturesque. But you must see the sunset from the ancient ruins of the Agios Nikolaos castle.

Crowds of tourists gather there for this experience so get there early. Watch the sky transform into a virtual painter’s palette of inspirational colors. The view of the sea and nearby volcano are also said to be breathtaking. Be sure to explore the entire island and see all of Santorini’s beauty.

12. Catch the caldera

Santorini’s natural beauty is largely due to its distinct terrain morphology. Witness the Santorini caldera, a large, mostly submerged cauldron-like hollow or sinkhole born of a powerful volcanic eruption, there in the southern part of the Aegean Sea. The caldera is found 120 kilometers (74+ miles) north of the isle of Crete in Greece.

This volcanic complex, reported to be the most active section, includes the volcanoes of Santorini, Nisyros, Milos, and Methana. Enjoy the best views from the villages of Fira, Firostefani, and Oia. You can even see Santorini’s caldera by air.
