• Fira view
  • Overview

    Fira, also written Thira, is Santorini’s capital. The town sits high on the rim of the extinct volcano, with whitewashed houses and blue domed churches clinging to the volcanic cliffs. The cobbled streets of the town are largely pedestrianised, and in amongst the shops, boutiques and jewelleries are art galleries, museums and cathedrals to explore. It’s best to get around on foot, by donkey or cable car. The town comes into its own during Santorini’s fabled sunsets. If you fancy heading out to sea, the port offers regular boat services to Mykonos, Naxos and Paros.
