The dramatic landscape and the beauty of the caldera made Santorini a privileged location for film shooting. Every year, several production companies examine the island as the set for their films. If you’re thinking about your next holiday destination, feast your eyes in Santorini’s beauty by watching some of the most memorable movies shot there:

Summer lovers (1982)

Summer lovers

A stunning albeit too hot and sexy for family viewing, this movie is filled with leggy blonde Darryl Hannah and dashing Peter Gallagher in swimsuits –if that- an irresistibly perky soundtrack ("I'm So Excited!" is the theme song), and glorious shots of sun-drenched Santorini and the deep blue of the Aegean.

The sisterhood of the traveling pants 1 (2005) and The sisterhood of the traveling pants 2 (2008)


Four best girlfriends hatch a plan to stay connected with one another, as their lives start off in different directions. They decide to pass around a pair of secondhand jeans that fits each of their bodies perfectly, and seems to make wishes come true.

Tomb Raider – The Cradle of life (2003)

Angelina Jolie returns as Lara Croft in this action-packed movie which features many Greek locations, including the island of Santorini. Your own travel adventures may vary from this fictional depiction!

Just remember that Santorini is 100 times more stunning in real life! Don’t miss the opportunity to star in your very own romantic (or maybe action) feature where the opening credits are set in a luxury Blue villa!
