Her name is officially Thera but Santorini is how the island is calls most of the time. She covers an area of 96 km2 and has a total coastline of 69 kilometres.
The landscape on the western side of island,where towering cliffs crowned by tiny and blindingly-white houses plunge straight into the depths of the sea.
