The Aegean Islands region
The world famous island of Santorini is a yearly award winner of the world's best island and most desired destination. Travelers wish to visit the island at least once in their lifetime.
According to legend, Santorini emerged from the depths of the sea- opinion justified by the timeless activity of the undersea volcano and the geological topography of the island.
The first human remains, dating back to the Stone Age, show that the island has been inhabited since the prehistoric times. There is some evidence of life in the early Bronze Age, in the mid-3rd millennium BC, during the second period of the early Cycladic civilization (2800-2100 BC). However, from the middle Bronze Age (1900-1600 BC), evidence becomes more abundant, showing great development.
In the area of Akrotiri (Promontory), there was a prehistoric settlement with a very important port. The great volcanic eruption in the late Bronze Age (ca.1600 BC) buried the settlement under 30 metres of ash.
Fira , the capital,is famous for the narrow streets which are filled with many gourmet restaurants, traditional taverns, shops, art galleries and jewellery shops.
Transportation is served with daily flights from Athens airport with Aegean Airlines and Olympic Airlines, as well as with speed boats and ferries from Heraklion, Mykonos, Santorini and Piraeus port.
Fira is the capital of Santorini and the most important of all villages. It is located at the west side of the island and 8 km away from the main port, Athinios.
Fira has a constant 1,600 inhabitants. It is perched on the edge of an impressive cliff, at a height of 260 meters and offers a great panoramic view of the submerged volcano. In 1956, the island of Santorini was hit by an earthquake that destroyed a large part of the island. In Fira, a part of the town was destroyed, but luckily, some of the 18th century buildings were saved.
The town of Fira is a typical Cycladic village made of charming white houses with blue windows and doors, separated from each other by small paved streets. Many of its beautiful buildings were constructed back in the times of the Venetian invasion, including some blue domed churches and sun-bathed verandas that offer an incredible view of the volcano and the sunset.
In our days, Fira is a busy town. During summer and in its high season, the central streets are crowded and filled with all kind of shops, jewelleries, restaurants, coffee shops and night clubs.
