Travel Tips for Fira

The first view...

by fassolia

If you choose to go to Santorini by ferry from Athens the island starts capturing you even before your arrival.Red vertical rocks suddenly appear as the ship takes a turn to catch to the port Athinios.Then you see something like a white-lemon building curved in the rock (photo) and you realize it is beginning...

Fira

by Kaspian

Travel Dates: May 31 - June 4 2007.

Fira (pronounced "fee-ra" and sometimes spelled "Phira") is the capital of Santorini Island. It's a place where you often rub your eyes because the views and architecture are so fantastically magnificent that you begin to doubt that you're actually awake. Oh, but you are!

"The Caldera"

When I first started researching my trip here all I ever heard was, "get a room with a caldera view," like it's a common knowledge term and everyone's supposed to know what the heck a "caldera" is . Is it an island? A side of the town? What? So, I had to go look it up because everyone's too snobby to admit that at one point they themselves didn't know.

"The Caldera" is the giant bay at the bottom of the town. It's actually a giant depression that was caused by a volcanic eruption and the sea flooded in. So, at one point in time the place that's now Fira was actually connected to the islands across from it. When people say "get a caldera view" here, they're sort of just saying, "get an ocean view".

"In Blue And White"

When you think back to time spent in Fira, you'll think in blue and white. Such beautiful contrasting colours; colours which actually make up the Greek flag too.

I could spend an eternity of happiness walking the mazelike streets, stairs, and alleys of this place--stopping for delicious foods in little taverns, great beer on outdoor patios, and breathtaking views over the city's white buildings. And did I mention how friendly the people are?
