Santorini is on every traveler’s bucket list. The allure of the Greek islands draws visitors from far and wide, but Santorini’s dramatic black cliffs, white-washed architecture, and striking blue-domed churches create a unique visual identity. Together with a local expert, we will explore the island and revel in its beauty, history, and culture.

Santorini, named Best Island in Europe once again in 2020, and one of the most instagrammable places in the world, is a dream destination. Millions of people every year have this outstanding island on their travel itineraries. In this introduction to the island, we will enjoy Santorini’s classic highlights and landscapes, such as the renowned sunset in Oia, the vibrant capital Fira, and the Red Beach. We will learn how the volcano had such a predominant role in the development of the island.  We will have a quick introduction to the history, the myth of Atlantis, and the dominations which alternated over the centuries. We will also discuss the classic Cycladic architecture of Santorini and the less known villages in the south of the island. Santorini has become a trendy food and wine destination: we’ll learn about the local winemaking tradition, one of the oldest in Europe, and the traditional dishes cooked with unique local products.

Led by a photographer and local expert, Nicoletta Barbata, this conversation will explore the many aspects that make Santorini so stunning through photographs, videos, and maps. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an understanding of the island’s history and gorgeous scenery.

Born and bred in Milan, Nicoletta Barbata lived in Rome and London before following her Greek roots (her Grandmother) and settling in one of the most beautiful places in the world—Santorini. Nicoletta is a photographer, writer, and eager reader. She likes to describe herself as a genuine storyteller. She is passionate about sharing her deep love for Santorini and Greek culture, the history of this stunning island, and the stories of its inhabitants.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Wonderful Santorini

This was one of the best seminars we have taken. Nicoletta was charming and you could easily feel her love for the island of Santorini. Having been to Santorni, I learned about so many places that I would love to visit if I return especially sights that are off the normal tourist itinerary. You can tell that she spent a huge amount of time planning her seminar with great photos and videos. I would love to take a tour with Nicoletta if I return.
