The distinction for “Best Island in Europe” was awarded to Santorini for the 6th consecutive year by the readers of the acclaimed American magazine “Global Traveler”, which is addressed to high-ranking executives of companies, who are used to traveling abroad in luxury and style.
The prize was awarded in the context of the magazine’s “Leisure Life Style awards 2019“, which honor the best in leisure and lifestyle travel, awarding goods, services, destinations, hotels, airlines and cruises. During the prestigious award ceremony, which took place last month in New York, the magazine’s Publisher and Chief Executive Office, Francis X. Gallagher, said:”The fact that Santorini wins this award for the sixth consecutive year proves that our readers recognize the best when they see it. And the best is Santorini, which, with its impressive landscape and the unique experiences it offers, is an irresistible holiday choice.”
Interesting facts for our magnificent island also come from a survey conducted by easyjet airline: Almost one third of the people asked, said that the strongest motivation for choosing a holiday destination was how good the photos of the destination were (and how they would look) in their Instagram! The survey, which was carried out on a sample of 2,000 travelers, revealed that tourists took about 2,500 photos in a week’s holiday! And, needless to say, according to the same survey, Santorini ranks among the top 3 most desirable European photographic destinations!
Furthermore, the Indian TravelTriangle, the industry-leading company in India that unites both travelers and travel agents on a common platform, ranks Sanorini within the 3 most coveted destinations for Indians this summer.
So why wait? For leisure, for luxury, for photos, for so much more, come to Santorini, and come to Oia, to experience one of the most photographed views in the whole world: Its magical sunset.
