Fira is the capital of Santorini, it is the busiest part of the island, it has magical views of the caldera and volcano and beautiful white building such as churches, museum and cathedrals. There is a lively atmosphere with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars.
We strolled up along the narrow paths in the evenings and enjoyed the scenery. One evening we had delicious sushi at a restaurant called ‘Ginger Sushi’. We knew that this was not traditional Greek food but how could we say no?
The best place to relax, have a cocktail and watch the sunset was ‘PK cocktail bar’ where you can admire the breathtaking view. We saw our first Santorini sunset, this was one of the longest and most beautiful sunsets we’d ever experienced. If you ever decide to go make sure you reserve front row tables in advance, especially just before sunset for the best views to avoid disappointment.
We highly recommended visiting Fira than Oia if you are wanting to let loose and be wild. It has more nightlife and shopping and obviously the best views! Fira’s more charming, rather than Oia as this was more of a local town rather than a tourist location. We really enjoyed it but be prepared for the large crowd though!
Stay tuned for Mykonos.
