Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Let the collections at S.M.A.G Spira Marble Art Gallery and Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tzamia - Krystalla Art Gallery Santorini and Ernesto Workshop & Gallery. Take a break from Fira with a short trip to Atlantis Books in Oia, about 30 minutes away. The adventure continues: view the masterpieces at Art Space, do a tasting at Venetsanos Winery, pause for some serene contemplation at Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral, and see the interesting displays at Monastery of Profitis Ilias.
