Have you ever been to Santorini?

Monday, June 14, 2010


As you go north along the main road, you will find Firostefani, only 1.5 km away from Fira (approximately 10 minutes walking distance). By now Firostefani is an extension of Fira. You will notice that the view is equally exquisite in both villages, but the atmosphere in Firostefani is quieter. It is a perfect choice for those who want to be close enough to the cosmopolitan life of the capital, but not in the heart of it. Of course there are places for you to eat or have a drink here by the caldera.
Located in Firostefani is Petros Nomikos Conference Centre, where you can find an exhibition with life-size reproductions of wall paintings found in Akrotiri’s ancient settlement. You will be surprised by the Center and the unique view will be an unforgettable memory for you. So visit the Center late in the afternoon to experience another sunset from the top of Firostefani.
No doubt this village should be called the “balcony over the Aegean”, since Palaia and Nea Kammeni lie directly opposite.
