    nice place but more expensive then other greek islands , except Mykonos.
    People pay 500/2000 €uros for 1 night to see a sunset. It is free everywhere ;)

    tony if you haven't been before you won't be disappointed, I'd go back tomorrow - happy memories of it, if you walk do go right to the far end, it's well worth it.

    Yes Shauna, it was amazing, entire Crete and Aegean sea and the islands were covered in dust, all the way to Romania and Russia!
    I see MSC Musica and Costa Deliziosa are here (didn't see this one for ages).

    Just discovered that lovely looking hotel in the foreground is couples only, so as a seriously single person I wouldn't be able to go there. Things like that just make me feel so lonely.

    Hi Sharron, no worries, can't imagine a spring of 30 degrees and then summer after it!

    When I read East London I immediately thought of you being in the UK then I read on.

    Take care and good luck with the humidity - wouldn't do for me, I've experienced it now and again in Florida but that's just a brief taste.

Santorini - Firostefani Settlement

The town of Ancient Thira, was built on the hill Mesa Vuno and founded by the Dorian colonists during the 8th century B.C.., it domains the southeast coast of the Island of Thira and, since its foundation and until the end of antiquity, was the civil, administrative and religious center of the city state of Thira.

Firostefani is the old village north from Fira characterized by traditional villages, the view of the capital city, the sea and the volcano. Its name means 'Crown of Fira' due to the altitude of the location in relation to the rest Fira.

Caldera is called the territorial cavity formed when the part of a volcanic cone recedes; the most characteristic Caldera in Greece is the one of Santorini Island which was formed around 1613 B.C. due to the Minoan eruption that took place.

The outline of the Caldera of Santorini is formed from the Islands of Santorini, Aspronisi and Therasia. The diameter of the Caldera of Santorini reaches 16 Km which classifies it as the largest Caldera on Earth.

The Villa Ilias Hotel is situated in one of the best locations of the island. From an altitude of 300 m anyone can admire the Caldera, the volcano and the unique and amazing sunset.
