Once you manage to get to the beautiful FIRA, which is the current capital of Santorini, you will meet your local Guide and start an unforgettable excursion that will bring you nostalgic memories for the “lost Atlantis” of the Aegean sea.
Our first destination will be the famous village of OIA, one of the most beautiful villages of Santorini, with breathtaking views of the volcanic islands which are lying next to Thirasia.
This small village is quite picturesque and well-known for its Blue Domed Churches.
Visited by millions of people, is praised for its spectacular and beautiful sunsets and has the ability to attract tourists, artists and celebrities from around the world, due to its architecture, which is unique, for its mixture of white houses, preserved and dated from the Venetian and medieval times.
The next point to visit is the highest point of the Island, the mountain of the Monastery of Prophet Elijah, located near to the traditional village of Pyrgos, the old capital of the Island.
This route will give you the opportunity to meet the History of the island and have a panoramic scenery all the way to Pyrgos village.
From the mountain the tourists can appreciate all the extension and geographical beauty of the island, almost in its 360 degrees and visit the open areas of the Monastery. There the Monks sell their own products, as they have the opportunity to cultivate them in the fields of the Monastery.
While going down to sea level you can admire changing landscapes and local people, who still work their lands and especially the vineyards in Pyrgos area.
Our the next destination will be KAMARI, an area of many hotel accommodations and shops, which is always vivid and is the quintessential resort of Santorini Island.
Its extensive beach is distinguished by its Volcanic Black sand. There you can walk along the shore of the Beach or can walk the pedestrian zone which combines many restaurants, cafes and shops. Before reaching to the end of your excursion you’ll have the opportunity to meet again the “heart of the island”, which is no other than Fira.
FIRA is a place of cosmopolitan people who come to enjoy its beautiful views offered by the volcanic caldera combined with the unique waters of the Aegean Sea. It is located in the western edge of the island, opposite of the volcano and the two volcanic islands, Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni that lie in the sea.
Fira is a combination of natural beauty, social life, night life, and shopping, where you can feel the liveliness of the island and where all the action takes place.
What makes it so ravishing is the Caldera view that leaves visitors speechless anytime of the day. A walk to the scenic alleys during the daytime will refresh and fill you with harmony. Moreover, for the History lovers there’re two of the most important museums of the island: the Archaeological Museum of Thera and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera which offer a multitude of relics and historic items from the whole island.
Last but not least, in Fira there is a wealth of restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs where you can relax and enjoy the tremendous view or dance and have fun during the night.
It owns the greatest dining out and entertainment selection of the island and the largest shopping center, too.
Isn’t it the best way to finish a full day excursion? Over there you can enjoy a meal or a coffee with the breathtaking Caldera View or do your shopping which is even better, before going back to your starting point.
