Volcano · Nature / Park
The cause of one of the largest and most destructive eruptions in recorded history, Santorini Volcano represents an active volcano with a crater rising out of the sea. The volcano violently erupted in 1627 BCE, destroying the island's thriving Minoan settlement. Although no clear records remain of this event, the eruption appears to have inspired many Greek myths and produced a short-term climatic change that caused heavy rainstorms as far away as Egypt. Today, all of Santorini serves as a kind of volcanological museum, offering you a chance to observe a range of geological features. To appreciate the volcano in its full glory, take a boat tour around the island. Put Santorini Volcano on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Fira trip itinerary website.

  • I had an excursion on the volcano island. It has been really a long long walk under the sun. The view is great and also the place worth it but be ready to walk a lot and bring water with you.  more »
