The 14 best things to do in Santorini

The 14 best things to do in Santorini

There’s nothing quite like standing at the top of the multicoloured cliffs that Santorini is famous for. This island is one of the most unique destinations in the world, and not just because it is in the huge crater of a volcano. The scenery here seems crafted by the Greek gods: whitewashed villages crown the island with views over its sea-flanked edges, rural vineyards span huge stretches inland, and the beaches are black, red and out of this world. There’s plenty for explorers, foodies and culture vultures to discover, from archaeological sites to swimming spots and friendly hotels, brilliant wine and Mediterranean food.

Where to stay in Santorini

Where to stay in Santorini

In Santorini, the sunsets blaze across the sky, the beaches boast beautiful colours, the archaeological sights tell ancient stories and wind-beaten vineyards produce world-class wines. The island is filled with things to do and see – and knowing where to stay is essential.  So what are your options? Well, you could opt for a clifftop area where you can enjoy views over the villages nestled into the sides of the island. Or you could relax in a quiet inland village or you could head to a series of hamlets positioned near to the volcanic sand beaches on the coast. In all cases, the options are pretty darn dreamy.

The 9 best things to do in Rhodes

The 9 best things to do in Rhodes

The best things to do in Rhodes heavily rely on the island's history, which is unlike anywhere else in Greece. Its position in the Aegean Sea once placed it at a crossroads of trade and sea-faring. Today, the entire island’s a time capsule telling stories of the different civilisations who have called this place home. Visiting the medieval city of Rhodes is like walking through a time machine that will spit you out into a world of trusted knights and fairytale castles. Here, buildings are preserved, easy to explore and admire. (In 1988, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.) Ancient temples stand alongside medieval walls as well as churches, mosques and other structures influenced by the occupiers of eras gone by. Once you’re done soaking up all that history, there are still homely villages, lush valleys, beautiful hotels and relaxing beaches to discover. Done something on this list and loved it?

Seis coisas a não perder em Santorini

Seis coisas a não perder em Santorini

Não há nada como estar no topo de um dos penhascos coloridos de Santorini, na Grécia. Esta ilha é um dos destinos mais incríveis do mundo, e não o é apenas por ser uma enorme cratera de um vulcão. O cenário parece ter sido criado pelos deuses gregos: aldeias caiadas de branco coroam a ilha, todas com uma vista privilegiada a partir dos penhascos que mergulham no mar, campos de vinhas que desenham riscas ao longo da terra e praias de areia preta e vermelha que parecem de outro planeta. Há muito para exploradores, foodies e malta da cultura descobrir, desde sítios arqueológicos a locais para nadar e, claro, beber vinho maravilhoso e experimentar comida mediterrânica.
