What to do in Santorini

Visit Santorini during your cruise vacation

For many, Fira has one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. The white washed houses with bright blue roofs and spectacular views on top of the cliffs form a romantic setting.

Fira is the capital of the island, that owes its present shape mainly to volcanic eruptions in the past. It's located at 300 meters high making resulting in breathtaking views over the sea and the volcanic area.

In Fira you will find small streets with shops, bars and restaurants. From one of the many terraces is just relax and enjoy!

Practical info

Fira is the first place on the island of Santorini, which is accessed from the old harbor. It's a small town with little real highlights, but you will mainly go to relax and enjoy the beautiful view. Count on a few hours. During busy times keep in mind the waiting times for the tender boats and lines for up to 30 minutes for the funicular.

You can also first make an excursion to Oia, further on the island, and visit Fira on the way back. In the latter case count on at least half a day.
