Fira

Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Escape the urban bustle at Kamari Beach and Perissa Black Sand Beach. Popular historic sites such as Akrotiri and Ekklisia Panagia Platsani are in your itinerary. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Red Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, see the interesting displays at Monastery of Profitis Ilias, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Vlychada Beach.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Fira online trip builder.

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.
