It is clear that Santorini is an ideal tourist destination. There are a lot of cruises that go to the archipelago, but they stop at the main island for a few hours in Fira (the capital of the island) and quickly return to the ship to sail to other destinations. Spend more time discovering the attractions of Thira and its bucolic white and blue villages.
