Santorini – The Island That Tourism Couldn’t Kill

Greece - Santorini, church dome and bellsSometimes it’s OK to go with the pack, eschew the road less travelled and head for tourist icons like Santorini. This spectacular island in the southern Agean Sea has one of the most stunning views on earth, from the cliff-top villages across nearby islands to the setting sun, drawing tourists like bees to a honey pot. Just yesterday, there were three large cruise ships in port. Tomorrow there will be several more. This could be a bad thing. Yet few leave disappointed because Santorini delivers on expectations and then some. Locals are also happy with their lot in life, none of the jaded cynicism prevalent elsewhere. So ignore the crowds and make the effort, this is a place everyone should visit. A tourism icon that deserves its reputation.
