Payment - Peace of mind
There are many shops and shopping hubs in Santorini, Greece that will give you the opportunity for Santorini shopping.
The Cycladic Islands are world famous for their beautiful towns of cubic white - washed homes and blue-domed churches. Santoríni is especially famous for the towns in Firá, Imerovigli and Oía, whose white and pastel-colored homes and churches seemingly stacked on top of each other and are perched on the cliffs of the caldera. Many of these traditional homes are built on cliff-side caves, thus having a much larger interior than their exterior would suggest. The architecture of Santoríni's picturesque towns is typically Cycladic, but with strong neoclassical and baroque influences visible in many of the island's churches and public buildings.

Due to an accident in September 2005, the excavation site is closed to the public and is expected to be opened again in early summer of 2010.
The Santorini vineyard is therefore extremely old. Being from the few worldwide not affected by vine wine louse, without American characteristics, makes it unique.
