  • It is a beautiful church but, at least for me, very rare. It has works of art and chairs placed in the middle of a living room where to settle to pray. Everything is very striking and strange, but it is very nice

  • The Cathedral is located at the bottom of mashed potatoes and look many places in town, built in 1827 for architecture design, applications on the noise of 1956, but restored quickly in their outdoor works and impressive Bell Tower arches form a kind of peaceful courtyard in םנים several frescoes, huge chandeliers and magnificent woodwork.

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.
