The capital and the heart of the island. Here are all the shops, public services, restaurants and cafes built on the edge of the Caldera, offering an amazing view of the volcanic and surrounding islands. Here also you will find night clubs and bars for the entertainment of local people and visitors. Walking underneath the church of Ipapanti, below the hotels, you will be in Kato Fira, where you will see the traditional houses carved in the rock. The old port of Fira, the first port of Santorini is located in the bottom of the cliff. Now it serves cruise ships and tour boats, but worth a visit, as it is accessible only by cable car, by foot or donkeys. We suggest to take the path behind the cable car station which will lead you to the next villages, Firostefani and Imerovigli.
