Known for its whitewashed homes along the Aegean Sea — often seen in photos and films — Santorini, Greece, offers visitors an island escape in a city known for agriculture as well as tourism. Blogger, writer and avid travel Kathy Petrino has long been interested in this Greek island, seemingly straight from a postcard, but primarily rebuilt out of volcanic devastation in 16th century B.C. and known for Mediterranean food and wine. Santorini is among the Cyclades Islands with beaches of black, white and red lava pebbles, yet cliffs that overlook the sea. Set foot along the black sands of Kamari Beach or the crimson shoreline of Red Beach in Santorini, an island with a still-active volcano, before enjoying the beautiful Greek culture loved by Kathy Petrino and others.
