The photo with the port of Santorini is viral! The Germans are coming back etc. Yesterday a photo was released with the port of Santorini literally sinking from people.
However, the first photo was taken on Friday, September 28, 2018 at the port of Athinios.
Due to the two-day exclusion of the islands from the weather, most foreigners chose to change the days of departure. And when the first ships arrived on the island, we had the following picture:
The image went viral, but with texts that were highly misleading:
The port of Santorini seems to be flooded with thousands of tourists, in a spectacle that refers to a pre-election rally in Greece in the '80s.
Nobody mentions the date the photo was taken, which was used by well-known news sites, along with a clickbait title of the type "Santorini sank", we do not say or show names.
Where did we find the photo? But of course on Google, with a reverse search.
In a from the sites that had the photo from 2018 (naxospress.gr) Nikodimos Lianos reports:
Santorini 2018. The world tourist destination with the port of shame! The traffic was such that no one could reach the port in less than 1,5 hours. Many passengers were forced to descend the turns of Athinios on foot to catch the ship passing between trucks, buses and cars. The highlight was a father who put his children on suitcases with wheels and slid them downhill. The downstream of a jewelry island with infrastructure of a third world country.
How did the story begin? According to daynight.gr (vouliazei-i-santorini-kosmos-limani) he uploaded the photo to his staff his facebook account Michalis Vlatakis, president of Tourist & Travel Agents of Crete, ringing the alarm bell for the phenomenon of "hypertourism" that plagues the beautiful island of Cyclades.
