“The” walk : Hiking from Fira to Oia

It is imperative to do at least once the amazing itinerary from Fira to Oia on foot following the grim of the Caldera. Only in this way will you have experienced the absolute grandeur of the island! In Fira you should ask for the old path leading to Oia. Make sure you set off early in the morning to avoid the big heat, or in the evening so that you reach Oia in time for the sunset. It will take you about 2 hours to get there. You will pass by Catholika of Fira with the beautiful mansions at the tip of the grim. Walking down to the caldera you will meet the Catholic Cathedral. Going on towards FirostefaniImerovigli, you will see Agios Nikolaos and get to Skaros. Walk up to Theoskepasti, a picturesque little church. When getting to the asphalted road, there is an uphill leading to the Prophitis Elias chapel. From here you have the best view to the Caldera and the plain of Oia.
