Car Rentals Fira Santorini

At the top of the Caldera cliff hanging at the edge of the abyss, we find the capital of the island Fira.

Santorini's capital, with the whitewashed houses and the blue window frames is built on top of the Caldera cliff with a breathtaking view overlooking the volcano and the sea.  Fira (also called Chora or Hora) is referred as one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world.

Fira is a village built along scattered streets, cobbled alleys, small and large steps climbing the side of the cliff, barrel roof cave houses each one on a different level, enjoying astonishing views over the Caldera .

One of the most attractive districts is Kato Fira with its distinctive architecture: White houses with flat roofs glued next to each other, churches with brilliant blue domes and white bell towers like Agios Minas and Christ’s (Christou) that have become the symbols of Santorini.

In the Catholic district of the village we will find the two Catholic monasteries, the Dominicans Monastery and the Monastery of the Sisters of Mercy.

It is worth visiting the Archaeological Museum of Fira that hosts findings from the Akrotiri area and the ancient city of Thira . At the new Museum travelers can admire colorful Fira frescoes originally thought to be from the ancient lost city of Atlantis.

Apart from the sightseeing attractions Fira is a place that offers accommodation and entertainment, all over the area you will find hotels and apartments, bars, cafes, clubs, restaurants, and shops with folk art, jewelry and local products.

You can reach Fira  by car from Athinios, the only port of the island, or from Mesa Gialos. From the port Athinios you can also climb to Fira by cable car, walking up the cliff stairs or on a donkey.
