A view like no other 

If you’re a sucker for sea views, then you’ve struck gold on a holiday in Fira. This hilltop town gives you the perfect vantage point for glancing out over the Aegean and down across the caldera – a dormant volcano that hides beneath the water. As day turns to night, you’ll see pinks and oranges flood the sky.

Island-hop until your heart’s content

From Fira’s port, you can head out on a boat trip to many of the surrounding islands. Thirassia, Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni all sit within Santorini’s crescent shape, so you can be there in no time. Fancy checking out some of the other gorgeous Greek islands? Take your pick from regular ferries to Mykonos, Paxos and Paros.
