Greece is the perfect combination of history and idyllic countryside everywhere you turn. It’s no surprise that recently it has become one of the most popular tourist destinations during every season of the year.  

Boasting year-round good weather, Greece offers excellent tourism options for every traveler. History lovers will enjoy Athens with its 3,000-year-old iconic monuments. And those who love the peace and tranquility of the coast have endless islands dotting the clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea to explore.  

Because in addition to the capital of Athens and its rich history, Greece is home to more than 6,000 islands of which only two hundred or so are inhabited — with the stunning island of Santorini attracting most of the attention. 

Born from the depths of a volcanic eruption hundreds of years ago, Santorini is instantly recognizable worldwide today for its traditional villages of white homes with blue domes rising above the caldera on the edge of breathtaking cliffs.  

The island offers incomparable views of the most spectacular sunsets in the world, but that’s not all. There’s a great variety of cuisine to delight your taste buds, from authentic, local Mediterranean dishes to food infused with international flair, as is the case of the menu at the renowned Pérgola restaurant, where the innovative and fresh style is complemented by one of the island’s products par excellence — wine. 

Surrounded by black, white, and red sand beaches and lying beyond the busiest tourist areas, this pearl of the Aegean holds some hidden corners where you can get lost and never want to be found. Explore Oia and its breathtaking sunsets, Red Beach with its unusual red sands, or the historic village of Imerovigli that sits 300 meters above sea level. It originated as a lookout post due to its strategic location on the edge of the caldera, allowing it to dominate the island.  

With unparalleled views of the volcano and the bay known as the Balcony of the Aegean, Imerovigli has a special charm that includes stays such as the one offered by Iconic Santorini, the perfect boutique hotel for a romantic getaway or a family holiday, in a dreamlike setting — inside the caves formed by the cliffs themselves. Its delectable fare, together with its wellness services make the Iconic Santorini a unique experience for enjoying the magic of this corner of the Mediterranean.
