Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos and Art Space. Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Perissa Black Sand Beach will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, see the interesting displays at Cultural Village, and admire the masterpieces at MATI Art Gallery.
