Fira ( Santorini Town)

Fira, the stunning capital of Santorini, is a dynamic city that boasts a plethora of attractions. As the largest and most cosmopolitan settlement on the island, it sits on the western edge, gazing out at the majestic volcano and the two picturesque volcanic islands of Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni.

Despite facing tragedy in the form of a devastating earthquake in 1956, Fira has gracefully risen from the ashes and has become a hub of liveliness and vitality. Along the edges of the caldera, luxurious hotels, charming cave houses, and stunning infinity pools are peppered, all embraced by a labyrinth of narrow streets bustling with storefronts, bars, and restaurants.

This enchanting place is not just made up of buildings, but of people, creating a vibrant and captivating energy that you won’t want to miss.
