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.

It was an amazing trip. I had a long walk on July so it was very hot, but is really worth it. The view is great and you can see the black stones. It is suggested to wear comfortable shoes and bring water with you.
A sleeping volcano, not very impressive. A lot of black rocks and dust. Nothing more.
