Santorini, also known as Thira, is part of the Cycladic Islands. This fascinating part of Greece is famed for its deeply rooted historical and architectural features. Beneath the ever-present gorgeous sunshine, there are many cultural sights. One of the essential ones for travellers to Santorini intrigued by the island's ancient past is the town of Akrotiri, in the south. This 3500 year old Minoan settlement has been preserved by volcanic ash and can be visited all year round. The incredibly well preserved remains can present travellers with something of an insight into an ancient civilisation. The Museum of Ancient Thera in the nearby town of Fira has collected and compiled many of the artefacts unearthed from Akrotiri. Presented in a clear and engaging manner, the museum marks another essential for those fascinated with the ancient civilisation. The more recent architecture of Greece holds a further interest, with the famous white walls and blue roofs marking Santorini out as being immersed in a wider culture of colour, beauty and life.
