Santorini island is awarded once more from TripAdvisor members. This time, as 2nd island in the world, 2 places higher than last year.

In a quick description about Santorini, TripAdvisor quotes: “Even if you’ve never been to this Cyclades island in the Aegean Sea, you’d still recognize it immediately – candy-colored houses carved into cliffs, sapphire waters, gleaming white buildings topped with half-spheres the color of a stormy sky. Here you’ll find peace as you roam the black sand beaches or the streets of a provincial village like Imerovigli. Beautiful Oia is world famous for its sunsets, which seem tinted with every shade of an artist’s palette”
