The many shades of Santorini (BBC)

A rainbow of colour

Beyond the classic Greek blue and white skyline, Santorini is an island of burnt orange and blood red, royal purple and butter yellow, electric green and pastel pink.

Even at first glance, it's clear that Santorini is unlike any other island in Greece. Located some 300km southeast of Athens in the Cyclades, the volcanic isle is home to a world-famous caldera edged by 300m-tall cliffs that plummet into the sea. Just as surreal as the crater, however, is Santorini's rainbow of colours; even its cliffs, made up of layers of volcanic rock and soil, are banded with bright hues.

Yes, Santorini is an island of the classic Greek blue and white variety - but with a bit of exploring, it's easy to see a place of burnt orange and blood red, royal purple and butter yellow, electric green and pastel pink. (Amanda Ruggeri)
