Fira is the capital of Santorini Island, located at the west side of the island, 10 km away from the main port of Athinios. Built on a cliff, at a height of 260 meters, it offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the volcano. Fira gets very busy during the high season. It is a typical Cycladic village with charming whitewashed houses, blue doors and windows, and small labyrinth-like paved alleys. Most of its beautiful buildings are of Venetian architecture, including some blue-domed churches and colorful verandas that open up an incredible view of the volcano and the world-famous sunset of the island.

Popular areas in Fira

Fira is the place where blue doored houses, white-domed churches, and terraces with bougainvillea come to life. Fira is the commercial center of the island with all kinds of shops, great restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs. Caldera is the highlight of Santorini. For those into history, a visit to the Archaeological Museum is a must-do. The town includes numerous churches and monasteries worth visiting such as Agios Minas, the cathedral of Ipapanti, the cathedral of Christ, the monastery of Panagia ton Dominikanidon,  and others. Fira also has a port that is only used for cruise boats. From there, boats can take visitors for a tour to the volcano of Nea and Palia Kameni. Find a perfect spot to enjoy the sunset as the sun sinks into the Aegean sea. Go for a boat trip, sail, and swim along the island’s coastline or visit the island of Nea Kameni in the center of the caldera.  Taste the local wine such as Assyrtiko, Athiri, and Asiani or why not you can also taste their local beer! Eat like a local, taste fava (a yellow pea puree), ntomatokeftedes (tomato fritters), and keftedes (meatballs).

Things to do in Fira

Fira is probably the busiest port but if you headway from the main shopping area you will surely find a quiet spot. Explore the winding backstreets, pass the hidden chapels and follow the caldera to the neighboring village of Imerovigli or you can carry on to the old path from Fira to Oia, it takes three to five hours to walk it.  Go to Skaros Rock, one of Santorini's five fortresses, the view is breathtaking and it is a beautiful hiking trail. Walk down to the Old Port, there are 600 steps and a good way to stretch your legs and then go back with the Cable Car
