Fira

— 11 nights
Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist and Helicopter Tours. Explore Fira's surroundings by going to Akrotiri (Experience Horse Riding & La Ponta). There's much more to do: make a trip to Three Bells of Fira, see the interesting displays at Monastery of Profitis Ilias, take in the spiritual surroundings of Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral, and do a tasting at Artemis Karamolegos Winery.

For other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Fira attractions planning tool.

Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.
