Fira is the capital of the island of Santorini. It is built on the edge of a cliff 260 meters above sea level.

Fira gets very crowded when cruise ships arrive, and all the tourists walk through the narrow streets. They have to be back at the cruise ship around 22 hours. So it is best to visit Fira early, when it is relatively quiet and the sun is not too harsh.

There are stairs leading from Fira down to the sea.
