Turns out the actually could!! But not for thousands of years...."it would take about 13,000 years for those cracks to reach the surface and that after it did it would take another 11,000 years for the cracks to close and eruptions to stop." Apparently Santorini is sitting on top of multiple volcanoes with hot magma at the very bottom. Sad to think that this beautiful island will be obsolete one day

Thanks for sharing this information... The last time this volcano erupted, it was pretty destructive. I would hate to think about what would happen if it erupts again!!!
 

Santorini tips for first timers

You should visit the Gyzi megaron Museum in Santorini!

This museum is great because you can learn about the true culture and history of the island. The museum houses great authentic and intricate engravings, local clothing so you can see what people used to dress like, mabs, and a general overview of Santorini history. The artefacts are from the 15th to the 19th century and there are many pictures that show what the island used to look like before it was one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
