Amazing Festivities in Santorini for the Volcanic Eruption

Santorini is world renowned for many things, including its unique landscapes and its fierce beauty. The lunar-shaped beaches and the local products are also great features of the island. However, if we had to describe Santorini using just one world, this would probably be the volcano. The volcano has shaped the island over millennia and it is one of the major attractions to see, during your visit. Continuous volcanic eruptions have submerged the landscape and they have formed new islets, as well as the volcanic archipelago with the impressively beautiful caldera.

Ifaisteia is a fabulous festival taking place over the last few years on the island and it has attracted the interest of all travelers.
