Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera. The town's central location makes it a good base for day trips to other parts of the island, where you can discover traditional villages, ancient ruins, and secluded beaches. At the peak of the tourist season, Fira serves thousands of cruise-ship passengers each day. These passing visitors give the town a cosmopolitan atmosphere and fill its streets with ebullient energy. A cable-car ride to the old port area tops the itinerary for most sightseers, but you can also get there by riding a donkey with an experienced guide. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Fira trip itinerary using our Greece trip planner.

Places to visit with Fira

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.
