The Name of Santorini

Dandelion Travel Santorini - Private Tours

Interesting tidbit of information. It was the Venetians that gave Santorini its name. It is derived from Santa Irene and when travelers from Western Europe came to the island for supplies, they saw it as an appropriate name. It is said that the ancient name of the island, Thera, comes from its first settler, a Spartan named Theran.
