Thira Guide

Thira is the official name of the island of Santorini, Greece and is located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast of mainland Greece.

Thira is essentially what remained after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera.

With its dramatic views, stunning sunsets and beautiful beaches, it is no surprise that Thira is hugely popular with holidaymakers.


Kimolos Guide

Kimolos is a Greek island that lies in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades group of islands and is separated from the island of Milos by the Strait of Kimolos. According to legend, the island takes its name from the island's first resident. During ancient times, the island was called Echinousa, probably after the snake Echidna (viper) which was, and remains, common on the island. Since ancient times the island has been a battlefield between Ancient Athens, the ruler of the island, and Sparta, the ruler of nearby Milos.

Kimolos actually belongs to the Western Cyclades and is connected to nearby islands and the port of Piraeus, Athens, via a year-round ferry service with a catamaran ferry running only during the busy summer tourist season. During the tourist period, the island usually has daily connection to Piraeus and other islands. Also, transport via Milos is possible, because of the frequent connection of the two islands with local ferry services.
