The weather in Santorini is typical of a Greek island. This island is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago.
It is the remnant of a volcanic caldera that has frequently erupted in the ancient and past times. The few rainfalls in the wintertime create the best microclimate for the agriculture and the traditional winemaking of the island.
Moreover, from ancient times, the island is famous for its wine and pottery products. Also, it has always been a colorful trading portal for all the Cyclades group of islands.
