by | May 11, 2017

Fira is the capital town of Santorini and it’s the place with all the buzz and shops.

best hotels fira santoriniSo…you are possibly looking for the best area to stay in Santorini and Fira capital town popped in, right?

Even though Fira is the capital and the largest town of the island, there are some really impressive hotels with amazing views to the caldera and the volcano that won’t disappoint you.

READ ALSO OUR GUIDE: Where to Stay in Santorini?

At Fira, you will literally have everything at your doorstep: bars, shops, restaurants, clubs, street food (aka souvlaki) and …lots of tourists too unfortunately.

Or you can just stay at Imerovigli or Oia.

However, most of the hotels on my list are not disturbed by the people passing by, as most of them are very well protected and seclusive hanging by the dramatic cliff or a bit furhter away from the main Fira street.
