IFESTIA

Each September in Santorini takes place a very particular event - IFESTIA, the celebration of the volcano! 

The Ifestia Festival happens during one day and consist of a serie of artistic events dedicated to the mighty volcano from the middle of caldera, whose major highlight is a re-enactment representation of the famous Minoan Eruption (or the Thera Eruption) that took place around 1600 BC. The magnitude and the impact of this volcanic eruption affected many civilisations along Europe, especially the Minoan Civilisation and changed forever the course of european history, so it's no wonder the fame this festival has.

In order to enjoy this unique event, the municipality of Santorini organises every year in late September a realistical representation by recreating the former eruption - with pyroclastic effects and lights show, fireworks and sounds - as part of a festival. 

Everything happens in the middle - on the volcano - so the event is widely visible for everybody watching it from the rim of the caldera. However, we think there's always nice-nicer-nicest and we have two exclusive offers for you:
