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.


Sikinos Guide

The Greek island of Sikinos is one of the Cyclades group of islands and lies between the islands of Ios and Folegandros. Unlike many of its Greek island neighbours, Sikinos does not attract large numbers of visitors and therefore has managed to retain a great deal of its Greek charm. Chora is the island's capital and is one of the smallest and most picturesque villages in the Cyclades and has traditional Cycladic architecture and is built on the slopes of a mountain and comes complete with stunning views of the Aegean Sea. Popular attractions on the island include the Monastery of Episkopi which was first thought to be an ancient temple of the God Apollo but is now known to have the signs of Roman mausoleum architecture. It was built in the 3rd century AD and was modified to a Christian church, complete with a dome and bell tower, in the 17th century.

From the port is Sikinos, ferry services operate to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of around 3 hours and 30 minutes by high speed ferry and 7 hours and 30 minutes by conventional ferry. Sikinos is also connected by boat with the islands of Folegandros. Ios, Santorini, Serifos, and Sifnos.
