Firostefani Santorini

The following is from Firostefani Santorini

Firostefani lies to the north of Fira and there is little that separates it from it considerable larger neighbour. As with Fira the views from this part of Santorini are spectacular but the town are higher up so offer a different perspective of the volcano.

And of course one can enjoy the magnificent sight of  Fira itself. It is a superb place to enjoy the sunset in the evening.

The village has restaurants from which one can also observe the sunset in its full glory.

Between the village of Firostefani and  Imerovigli lies the Agios Nikolas Monastry. The largeish building with its typically Cycladic rounded edges is open 8-12.30 and 16:00-19:00. Depending where you are inside you can look to the east side of the island or to the volcano and beyond.

As with Fira, Firostefani contain a number of hotels. Both are picturesque and have a nice blend of cream and white variations in the colouring of the houses. Away from the cliff side view Firostefani has a less stunning part as well. There are a few shops.
