Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Akrotiri and Ekklisia Panagia Platsani will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at S.M.A.G Spira Marble Art Gallery and Eduart Gjopalaj. Change things up with these side-trips from Fira: Perissa (Perissa Black Sand Beach & Santorini Waterpark), Akrotiri (Santo Horse Riding, Venetian Castle of Santorini, & more) and Vlychada (Nature & Wildlife Tours & Tomato Industrial Museum). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Red Beach, kick back and relax at KAMARA BEACH, explore the activities along Amoudi Bay, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.
