  • Just came down these stairs but share them with donkeys and the fantastic view was actually pretty good. A little scary at first to see so much stupid but really worth it. The smell can be strong at the beginning and on arrival which is where more animals. Down took about 30 minutes.

  • Characteristic of fira, the road leading from the port to the city. Advice to descend by cable car and climb with the donkey and not the other way around. The cost amounts to about €6 one way for both of us. Of course you can go on foot, free but so much effort.

  • Something characteristic of Fira is this descent/hails from and vs porto filled full of donkeys that go you and down ... Sure sometimes the smell is not pleasant and the roads are closed by new donkeys but is a nice thing to do. .. Then to go up there is the cable car

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.
