In the 17th century BC, a massive volcanic eruption resulted in the formation of a half-moon-shaped island called Santorini, which would go on to become one of the most attractive islands in the world visited by about 2 million tourists every year. One can understand why this Greek island has become a favourite of many. It gives you the feeling of being in a completely different world with almost all the low-lying cubical homes in its settlements whitewashed with the volcanic ashes. Today, some of these houses have been converted into beautiful luxury hotels that give their guests some memorable staying experiences.
