Fira

Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Get a sense of the local culture at Akrotiri and Museum of Prehistoric Thira. Visiting Red Beach and Experience Horse Riding will get you outdoors. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos, stop by Atlantis Books E.E., delve into the distant past at Ancient Thera, and kick back and relax at Perissa Black Sand Beach.

For more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, read our Fira route planner.

Accra, Ghana to Fira is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Accra to Fira due to the time zone difference. Prepare for colder weather when traveling from Accra in March: high temperatures in Fira hover around 19°C and lows are around 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) so you can travel back home.

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.
