Travel Information

Venture to the picturesque island of Santorini for a luxurious holiday that you won’t soon forget. With breathtaking views and high-end amenities, there’s something for everyone in this beautiful paradise. From exclusive resorts to hidden gems.

Santorini is the southeasternmost island in Greece’s Cyclades islands cluster and it is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque destinations in the world. Known for its dramatic cliffs and crystal-blue coastline, Santorini’s distinctive beauty makes it a popular destination among travellers looking for an unforgettable experience. Its resort towns, such as Oia and Fira, provide visitors with access to gorgeous beaches and breathtaking sunsets.

LGBT Rights in Greece
The state of LGBTQ+ rights has made significant progress in recent years in Greece, although hardships and inequalities still persist in areas outside of the major cities. The country has undergone a widespread legal and societal transformation that has begun to improve the rights and protections for LGBTQ+ individuals.

When it comes to legal advancements, Greece decriminalised same-sex sexual activity in 1951, and in 2015, the Greek Parliament passed a law that recognised civil partnerships for same-sex couples, granting them legal recognition and many of the same rights as married heterosexual couples. However, marriage equality has still not been achieved, as same-sex marriages are not legally recognised.

The legal system in Greece prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in employment and certain other areas. However, LGBTQ+ individuals continue to face discrimination and social stigma in various aspects of their lives. Homophobic and transphobic attitudes persist in some parts of society, especially in more remote and rural areas.

On a positive note, Athens, the capital city, has a vibrant LGBTQ+ community with a thriving nightlife scene, with an annual Pride parade that attracts thousands of participants from across the globe. LGBTQ+ organisations and advocacy groups in Greece actively work to promote equal rights and social acceptance.

Though LGBTQ+ travellers can enjoy visiting all areas of Greece’s diverse landscape, the gorgeous island of Mykonos is a particular favorite amongst the LGBTQ+ community. In Mykonos, you’ll find a plethora of gay-focused bars and clubs as well as some of Europe’s most beautiful gay beaches.

History in Santorini

Santorini is steeped in history, with such sights as the traditional villages and ancient ruins. One of the most popular destinations on the island is Akrotiri. Here, visitors can explore some of the best preserved Minoan sites in Europe and enjoy stunning views of Mount Etna in Sicily. Nature lovers should also make time to visit The Caldera in Fira or take a boat excursion off the coast to see wild dolphins swimming in their natural environment.

The blue domes of Santorini

One of Santorini’s most iconic sights are the white and blue-domed churches. Painted in stark white and a brilliant deep blue, these churches dot the sky around the island captivating visitors with their brilliant display of color. Be sure to take some time and hike to the top of one of the villages for an unforgettable view of these picturesque structures. You may even spot wild donkeys or goats roaming through rustic pathways.

Vineyards in Santorini

Santorini is widely regarded as one of the most luxurious travel destinations in Greece, thanks to its stunningly beautiful landscape and fully-equipped villas. For wine connoisseurs, the island’s volcanic soil and warm climate create ideal conditions for growing some of Greece’s finest white wines – including Assyrtiko, Athiri, and Aidani. Enjoy luxury views along with your luxury tipple on a romantic getaway to Santorini.

Santorini is the perfect destination for luxury travellers looking to indulge in a wonderful experience. For wine lovers, there is no better way to explore the island’s famed vineyards than through one of our curated private guided tours that include tastings, winery and vineyard visits, and sumptuous meals in gourmet restaurants. These customisable tours are designed to meet your exact requirements, providing an unforgettable journey through Santorini’s viniculture.

You can fly or get a ferry to Santorini depending on your itinerary.

A lot of our clients visit more than one place in Greece, combing Mykonos and Athens with the island and for this route, it’s an experience to take the ferry between islands.
