World Travel – Greece 2007 – Part V

We travel back to the Cyclades Islands of Greece this time making port in Santorini. This is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion, destroying the earliest settlements on what was formerly a single island, and leading to the creation of the current geological caldera. The city of Firá (Phira); which is a different pronunciation of “Thira”, the ancient name of the island itself.

Just before our arrival the previous tour’s cruise ship sank here. EEK!!!!!!!
