Fira recieved a rating of 3.7 / 5 from Direct Booking customers (3 reviews during - ). Customer reviews about Fira, Santorini

Fira is the capital of the island and the most important village and is located on the west part of the island of Santorini Greece, 10km away from the Port of Athinios.
Fira is perched on the edge of a 260 meter cliff and offers a fantastic panorama on the volcano.
The earthquakes of 1956 destroyed a part of the town but hopefully, some of the18th century houses are still standing.

It is a busy touristy area and a stop for the majority of the cruise ships. The street are filled with all kind of shops, traditional and modern, many jewelleries, souvenir shops, restaurants, bars and night-clubs. Despite of all the tourism, the landscapes are still fantastic. The town is full of small houses of traditional architecture, blue domed churches, sun-bathed verandas, stepped streets and with the amazing endless blue sky surrounding the black islands of the volcano as a background.

You can also walk around the small churches and monasteries (Agios Minas, the cathedral of Hypapandi, the monastery of Panagia ton Dominikanidon, the cathedral of Christ, the monastery of Panagia ton Dominikanidon and Panagia tou Rodariou), the Archaeological Museum where you will also find the frequently photographed blue dome and white bell tower of Agios Mina and the Megaron Gyzi Museum with its fascinating collection of photos of Fira before and after 1956.

From Fira, you can have a tour by boat to the volcano of Nea and Palia Kameni.
On the main road, you will find the bus station for all directions and the taxi station.
The main square in Fira is Plateia Theotokopoulou where many people meet before going out at night.
