Santorini is a beautiful island located in the Aegean Sea. The mesmerizing cotton candy sunsets and white Mediterranean architecture make this Greek island the perfect scenario.

Wine and dine is not the only thing you can do while discovering Venice. You can rent a gondola and take a romantic boat trip through the city’s canals.
