Imerovigli is the second largest settlement on Santorini after Fira, which is the main town and capital. Nonetheless, Imerovigli maintains a quaint character, making it the most tranquil of all settlements on the western coast of the island. Boasting by far the most picturesque ‘balcony’ the island has to flaunt, Imerovigli also displays countless examples of authentic Santorini architecture and some of the most mesmerising views in the world. Take in the heavenly blue of the Aegean Sea, or the view of the ‘satellites’ of Santorini: the volcanic islets of Thirassia and Aspronissi. Last but not least, marvel at the grandiose caldera cliff, 30 km in length from one peak to the other.
Imerovigli has the added advantage of being found on the caldera’s highest cliffside, increasing its majestic, panoramic views. All of this makes Imerovigli the ideal vacation destination, where one can fully enjoy the calming aura emitted by the wild natural beauty of the island’s landscape. Santorini

One of the most enjoyable features of Santorini is its cuisine. Santorini is celebrated for its tasty delicacies, such as fava (split-pea dip), fried white aubergines, tomato balls, courgette balls, baked kalamari and sun-dried tomatoes, all of which can be sampled at the traditional taverns and restaurants throughout the island. Of course, you should always accompany your meal with a few glasses of famous Santorini wine!
Santorini is one of the most exciting destinations in the world, attracting millions of visitors every year. During ancient times, Santorini was an important cultural centre. Due to the many different tribes settling on the island, its name changed several times, from ‘Kallisti’ (the beautiful one) and ‘Stroggyli’ (the round one) to ‘Thira’ and finally ‘Santorini’, named by the Venetians after the Church of Saint Irene.
The history of the island is closely connected with volcanic activity in the area. In prehistoric times, a violent volcanic eruption occurred, altering the shape and morphology of Santorini forever and creating the impressive natural features that we admire today.
