Santorini is one of the most famous islands in the world. A unique, crescent shaped, island formed by an ancient volcanic eruption said to have taken place in 1650 BC and with the most breathtaking views in all the Greek islands. The inner edge of the island plunges almost 900 feet into the sea and the outer coast has long black volcanic beaches. Thira, the capital, is perched above towering cliffs and connected to the harbour below by a winding path of steps. Its whitewashed houses are constantly photographed and it also boasts many excellent restaurants, shops and bars.Ancient Akrotiri Ancient Thira Archaeological Museum of Pre-Historic Thira Ia VillageSantorini volcanoThe most important characteristic of the island of Santorini is the submerged volcano, which errupted, resulting in the submersion of the center of the island, leaving only the crater and the 300m cliff, from which you can see some of the most beautiful traditional white painted Cycladic villages</table>

In a new golden age of long-distance train travel, classic luxury tours are more popular than ever, and new routes are opening up some unexplored parts of the world. Table Mountain, South AfricaIt may be almost 80 years since Agatha Christie immortalised the Orient Express in her most famous novel, but it seems that a whole new generation is embracing the concept of train travel for pleasure. For some, this is the result of nostalgic mental snapshots from childhood day trips to the seaside; for others, of Christmas viewings of films such as Some Like it Hot. Personally, I blame Marc Jacobs-clad Adrien Brody in Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited. There’s also the growing trend for a slower, more experiential way of travelling, where the journey is as important as the arrival – a reaction against those ridiculous long-haul short breaks that have become so popular among ‘high rollers’ over the past few years. And then there is the sheer number of opportunities out there – from the ‘luxury touring train’ servi

Ibiza is nightclub mecca and every party hound must make a pilgrimage there at least once. The venues in Ibiza aren’t as much clubs as they are life experiences.Nowhere else have I seen a stripper rock a saxophone solo hanging from the ceiling naked, or the blast of a wind tunnel built into a dance floor, or parade floats and foam dropped from the ceiling like it’s the Fourth of July indoors.Enjoy the beach parties during the day, hit the hotel bars in the evening and dance to the best DJs in the world all night.Sleep not recommended.Best place to have an out-of-body techno experience: Shell out the extra money for the clubs in Ibiza Town (rather than San Antonio).
