Fira, Santorini

After a fun-filled sea day enjoying the sun, activities, and food on Rhapsody of the Seas, Our next stop brings us to Santorini, Greece.  Santorini is a Greek island on the Aegean Sea about 120 miles off Greece’s mainland.  The island is part of a greater remnant volcanic caldera.  The island is what was left of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in the earth’s history, the Minoan eruption that occurred ~3,600 years ago.
