Let nobody lie to you, Greece might be in a hole financially, but Santorini— their small island 200 kilometres southeast of their mainland — isn’t cheap.
As expensive as it is, it’s one of the most visited parts of Europe with about two million visitors thronging there last year, an island that is only 18 kilometres long from one end to the other. (Kenya did about 900,000 visitors last year.)
Everybody wants to go to Santorini because everybody talks about Santorini.
And takes pictures of Santorini. Santorini loves being photographed.
