santarinitravel Santorini is the most fascinating island of Greece. It is a volcanic island in the Cyclades group of the Greek islands. It is located between Ios and Anafi islands. Santorini is also called as Thira and its capital is the town Fira....simply santorini’s name is more than enough to unfold in mind stunning sunsets and scenery, white, red and black sand beaches, impressive traditional houses, balconies with view to the Volcano and lively night life. The locals mainly live off agriculture and tourism.
The islands largest export product is soil; 2.000.000 tons a year are used all over the world, mainly to make concrete. Living in Fira, Imerovigli or Oia towns is much more interesting.... rather than staying at Kamari and Perissa beaches.... it’s because these towns are on the cliffs...which are very beautiful and full of little cafes, shops and places of interest.
Today, Santorini is the only inhabited Caldera in the world... Unlike other islands in Greece, the towns and villages sit densely on top of the massive cliffs of the Caldera.... and from a distance appear like snow covering the mountain tops. The coloured layers of the volcanic rock of these cliffs are spectacular in themselves. The geographical uniqueness is not the only thing that makes santorini popular... there is a lot more to it.
Look out for more on Santorini... till than stay tuned and keep travelling!

namefairry Thira (thEAR-uh)
Origin: Unknown
Rank: not in the top 1000
NN: Thi • Thir • Ra-Ra
FUN FACTS:
The origins of Thira are unknown. Some sources say it's Greek. Others say it is derived from the old Norse name Thyra.
I love the sound and look of Thira. I think it is the long lost "cousin" to Thora and Thea!
QUESTION:
What would you name Thira's brother and sister?

empress_za ...Santorini from below, in the Aegean Sea. Those bus drivers there have skills, driving up those roads is something else! Also, I will never jump into the ocean/ sea again.
