Fira

Fira ©
Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Visit Akrotiri and Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral for their historical value. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos and Spas. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Red Beach, explore the world behind art at MATI Art Gallery, learn about winemaking at Venetsanos Winery, and examine the collection at Cultural Village.

Make your Fira itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

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. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Newark in September since evenings lows in Fira dip to 70°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) to allow enough time to ride a ferry to Mykonos Town.

Chora Mykonos

A holiday in Mykonos Town offers a chance to relax on picturesque beaches and explore a labyrinth of charming streets lined with traditional white houses.
On the 7th (Mon), indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, then enjoy the sand and surf at Paradise Beach, then take a stroll through Little Venice, and finally don't miss a visit to The Windmills (Kato Milli). Here are some ideas for day two: look for gifts at Gioras Wood Medieval Mykonian Bakery, go for a stroll along the water at Old Port, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Saint George, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at Ornos Beach.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Mykonos Town trip itinerary planner.

Traveling by ferry from Fira to Mykonos Town takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly. Expect a daytime high around 79°F in September, and nighttime lows around 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) so you can travel to Athens.

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.

To find maps, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Athens trip planner.

Getting from Mykonos Town to Athens by flight takes about 3 hours. Other options: do a combination of ferry and taxi. In September in Athens, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 69°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
