"Fira centre" Fira Tip by gueto

Fira, Santorini Island: 51 reviews and 152 photos

by gueto

The centre of Santorini Island is called Fira. Most of the hotels and shops are there. If you are going to stay in a hotel in Fira, try to keep in mind that the hotel is facing the ocean and not the island. We went to a lovely hotel but we didn't realise before hand that the hotel view is not as great as most of the hotels which are located facing the ocean.

I fell in love with every single little shop and restaurant in Fira. It is certainly very touristy because I wanted to buy everything. You can get nice pastry shops, jewelry shops, house decoration shops and souvenirs shops. You never get tired of browsing things.

Address: Fira down town
Directions: from the airport it's about 15 m by taxi.
