Fira – Santorini’s town on the edge
Everyone’s heard of Santorini and how it is one if not, the most beautiful of the Greek islands. Pictures, no matter how good, don’t do it justice.
The photo here of Fira the main town gives you an idea of its beauty.
Perched on top of a cliff overlooking the Caldera or volcanic ‘hole’ filled with sea water, it commands all before it.
Arriving by ferry is even more spectacular as you dock below Fira and then have to walk up the steep path to town. There are donkeys or mules that will transport you and your bags but I found that distracting from the whole experience of being there for the first time.
Can’t wait to go back!
