View and Volcano - Santorini, Greece - Photo

I thought this photo showed some of the best and worst of Santorini. It is a very beautiful island as this view of the main city of Fira shows. But… that volcano just off the shore and behind the cruise ship should give you pause before you decide to settle in Santorini.

This is a beautiful picture of Santorini. I admire Greece because of its simple lifestyle, lovely beach and good people. I think it would be a worth it to stay in Santorini.

I like the photo, too, Chris. The crumbling Greecian economy is more of a threat than the volcano, I think.



It’s such a small volcano though =P



The volcano was big enough to wipe out the Minoan civilization
