Fira town is the capital of Santorini which is perched high on the cliff top on the edge of the ancient volcano on the west side of the island.Fira town boasts magnificent views of the Aegean sea and the volcano.
Fira is a beautiful busy town with dazzling white houses and old pebbled, winding streets under ancient arches. The descent to the old port is an experience not to be missed.You can take the 500 steps down the Caldera (side of the Volcano) along a narrow cobbled path so the way down to the old port is easy.
On the way back, you can choose between the cable car or the traditional way by donkey.
Take a walk in the evening in Fira town along to Firostefani village (Fira town extension) and you will catch magnificent sights across the whole caldera.
