Santorini is the most popular island in Greece. It’s easy to see why — sunsets, sand and serenity.

Whitewashed houses perched atop jutting cliffs are surrounded by scattered, ancient ruins and dwarfed by a dormant but menacing volcano.

The island’s unique climate and volcanic ash soil are ideal for growing produce and Santorini is famous for its intensely sweet cherry tomatoes, almost seedless white eggplants and indigenous Assyrtiko grapes, which are sun-dried and used to make a sweet, rich dessert wine.

From stunning churches and cathedrals to lively fishing villages and mountain-hugging donkey trails, there’s culture and history everywhere you look.

To give you some perspective, Drone Arezzo shot this incredible aerial footage that will have you rushing to book your next European holiday in the Cyclades.
