Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Amoudi Bay and Byzantine Castle Ruins. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Red Beach and KAMARA BEACH. Go for a jaunt from Fira to Akrotiri to see La Ponta about 30 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Akrotiri, learn about winemaking at Venetsanos Winery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Ekklisia Panagia Platsani, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral.
