Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.

Manama, Bahrain to Fira is an approximately 10-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Manama to Fira due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Manama in April, you will find days in Fira are cooler (23°C), and nights are little chillier (15°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Oia.
