Volcanic islets are seen behind a Greek Orthodox church build on the edge of the caldera at the volcanic island of Santorini March 15, 2012. Initial data shows pre-bookings for the high summer season from Germany, which accounts for about 14 percent of Greece's total number of visitors, are down 20-30 percent. The drop in pre-bookings from Britain, Italy and the United States is expected to be smaller but still in the double-digit range. Greece's economy is in recession for a fifth consecutive year and is seen contracting by 4.3 percent this year as the government imposes austerity measures in exchange for financial aid from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.
