Thira, Santorini’s capital, sits perched high on a clifftop overlooking the ocean. The town offers stunning local architecture complete with picture book blue domed churches and whitewashed building everywhere you look. Look beyond the buildings and take in the amazing panoramic views of the coast and distant horizon.
This small town becomes a tourist must see in the summer months when the cruise shops dock in the old town. A cable car connects the old town from the lofty hilltop town. In peak season long lines of eager cruise ship passengers form, waiting for a ride to the top. The popularity of Santorini does make it relatively expensive compared to neighbouring islands.
From the top of the cliff, take the time to explore the town and the many shops and restaurants on offer. For a spot of local history, make sure you visit the Archaeological Museum and discover the history of this impressive volcanic island.
If you feel the need to return to sea level and the cable car is still busy, try a donkey ride down the cliff. The port offers great photo opportunities and a long walk back up if the donkeys and the cable car are busy.
Thira is an excellent place to visit and a good base from which to explore the rest of the island.
