Fira

Fira ©
Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Hiking Trail Fira - Oia and Perivolos. Let the collections at Museum of Prehistoric Thera and Tzamia - Krystalla Art Gallery Santorini capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: learn about winemaking at Santo Winery, take in the dramatic natural features at Skaros Rock, view the masterpieces at S.M.A.G Spira Marble Art Gallery, and kick back and relax at Red Beach.

For where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, read our Fira day trip planning tool .

Newark, USA to Fira is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Eastern European Time (EET) is 7 hours. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Newark in April since evenings lows in Fira dip to 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) to allow time to ride a ferry to Mykonos Town.
