Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Fira is known for wineries, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the ancient world of Akrotiri, steep yourself in history at Ancient Thera, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, and hike along Ekklisia Theoskepasti hiking trail.

For maps, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, read Fira road trip planning tool.

Doha, Qatar to Fira is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. The time zone difference moving from Arabian Standard Time (AST) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is minus 1 hour. Expect much colder weather when traveling from Doha in October: highs in Fira hover around °C, while lows dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sat) so you can travel to Athens.

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Venture out of the city with trips to Corinth Canal (in Corinth) and Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, wander the streets of Monastiraki, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and don't miss a visit to Ancient Agora of Athens.
