Santorini Among the World’s 30 Best Places to Visit in 2019-20


Santorini, Greece

The Greek island of Santorini is among the World’s 30 Best Places to Visit in 2019-20, ranking 24th on the list that was recently released by US News & World Report.

Recommending the perfect vacation spots, the list includes popular cities, exotic islands and major national parks.

“Frequently touted as a top honeymoon destination, this Greek isle [Santorini} woos newlyweds every year with its breathtaking sunsets, pastel-hued villages and colorful beaches,” the report said.

“Archaeological sites, such as ancient Thira and Akrotiri, beckon to history buffs, while central Santorini’s winery tours lure oenophiles.

For a relaxing daytrip, hop on a boat to Thirassia, and at night, head to Amoudi Bay to watch the sun set while dining alfresco.”
