    Museum to visit during a stay in Santorini, which has quite some archaeological remains that have been found on the island.

    Good museum for artefacts from Hiller von Gaertringen's and later excavations

    Small museum (45 minute to see and read all). Be sure to come here before going to the site of the actual ruins to get a good historical preview. Discounted ticket packs are sold at all the historical sites to get entrance to all.

    Nice museum with beautiful artwork from the excavations at Old Thera, the Spartan/Roman/Byzantine colony on Thera on top of the mountain from the 8th century BC to late 8th century CE.

    Small, but very interesting and cheap at the price. This museum takes up where the prehistoric museum ends. The classic era, that is the period of ancient thira, is presented here, whereas the time up to the bronze age, that is to say Akrotiri, is shown at the prehistoric museum near the bus station. Both are absolutely worth the time. Like all state-owned institutions in Greece, the museum closes at 4pm, so see the museum first and do your shopping afterwards.

Where to stay in Fira

The most unique way to experience Fira is to stay in one of its famous cave hotels or cliffside suites. The city in Santorini also has many spas and hotels to accommodate the massive waves of summer tourists on this island, and few are cheap. For more affordable options, venture further away from the cliffside. Or, if you're willing to spend a bit more on lodging, opt for a caldera view. There are a number of homes and villas for rent here as well, just be sure to check with your host about how exactly to get to your lodging, as many places are not accessible by road and require a journey by foot along stone steps.
