Fira

Fira ©
Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Akrotiri and Amoudi Bay. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Red Beach, explore the ancient world of Ancient Thera, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kamari Beach, and don't miss a visit to Sunset in Oia.

Plan my trip to Fira with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Cairo, Egypt to Fira is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. In September, Fira is little chillier than Cairo - with highs of 32°C and lows of 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Athens.
