Fira

Fira ©
Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
We've included these beaches for you: Kamari Beach and Perissa Black Sand Beach. Head to Gabbiano Nero and Eduart Gjopalaj Workshopfor some retail therapy. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Akrotiri, view the masterpieces at Ernesto Workshop & Gallery, explore the galleries of Art Space, and gain insight at MATI Art Gallery.

Plan my trip to Fira with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Newark, USA to Fira is an approximately 16.5-hour combination of car and flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Newark to Fira due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Newark in May, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be somewhat warmer in Fira, with lows of 63°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Thu) to allow time to ride a ferry to Mykonos Town.
