Santorini

Santorini with kids is bucket list material.is a crescent-shaped island in the Aegean Sea and one of the most popular travel destinations, famous all over the world for its unique beauty and magnificent sunset view. At the same time, though, it’s a destination of great mythological interest. A myth connected to the Argonaut expedition says that Santorini was initially created from a clod of earth. Upon their return from Colchis, Jason and the Argonauts stopped at the small island of Anafi. There, Poseidon’s son Euphemus dreamt of making love to a nymph, the daughter of Triton, who then told him that she was pregnant. Fearing her father’s wrath, she needed to find a place to hide and give birth to her child. So, she asked Euphemus to take a clod of earth from Anafi and throw it into the sea. And that’s what he did. The island that emerged got the name Thera from Euphemus’ son, Theras. Another fascinating myth linked to Santorini is the one of Atlantis. The excavation of Akrotiri, which was buried in ash after the volcanic eruption that took place sometime in the 16th century BC, increased the speculations that the island’s round pre-eruption shape was similar to Plato’s description. Santorini with Kids will bring all these myths to live and teach them more about Greek Mythology.
