Fira is the capital and the largest city on Santorini, it lies on the steep edge of the caldera as high as 400m up from the ocean. The location is spectacular with the white houses and small streets on the steep edge. Furthest out on the edge are mostly hotels and restaurants located. The view from Fira is truly spectacular and getting a hotel up here might be more expensive than the lower side of the island, but well worth it, get one with a pool. The center of Fira is a lively place with clubs, bars and many restaurants. We stayed about 800 meters north of the the immediate center and that was perfect, a little less people but still plenty of nice restaurants and bars nearby to choose from. For those looking for a walk there is a beautiful walking path through Fira and all the way to Oia for 12km.
