Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Skaros Rock and Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. Popular historic sites such as Akrotiri LightHouse and Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral are in your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to La Ponta in Akrotiri (about 32 minutes away). The adventure continues: take a memorable tour with Tours, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and examine the collection at Museum of Prehistoric Thira.
