Santorini, Greece

Santorini embodies all that has made the Greek Islands legendary—splendid beaches, unparalleled architecture, dramatic cliffs and quaint villages. The archipelago, perched on the edge of an active volcano’s caldera, is one of Greece’s Aegean gems. Blue-domed churches cap white-washed streets and white-, red- and black-sand shores are lapped by azure waters. Sunsets paint the bluffs in an array of oranges, pinks and plums—prime camera fodder for that perfect photo. Visitors can stroll cobblestone streets to browse shops and chow down on authentic dolmades and moussaka; tour local vineyards for sips of wine sourced from grapes grown in the rich, volcanic soil; or go on an excursion to the island’s highest point, the 1,860-foot Mount Profitis Ilias, for panoramic views and a look at an 18th-century monastery.
