Santorini Firostefani

Information about Firostefani

Firostefani Santorini: Firostefani lies to the north of Fira and there is little difference that separates it from its considerable larger neighbour. Without a doubt, the views from this part of Santorini are spectacular, offering another perspective of the volcano. One can enjoy the magnificent sight of Fira itself and the breathtaking sunset in the evening.

The village has plenty of restaurants and cafes located on the most fabulous locations but also offers some of the most impressive hotels of Santorini. There are also few shops, most of them are concentrated at the main shopping street, at the centre of Firostefani.

Between the village of Firostefani and Imerovigli lies the Agios Nikolas Monastery.

    Central spot away from noise
    I think Firostefani is one of the cutest of all the villages in Santorini Greece. It is actually like a neighbor to Fira and it is situated at the north of the capital. We walked there to Fira, which is a nice 40 minutes path along the caldera. A wonderful experience especially at the sunset! I heard that the municipality will make this walk a paved route, which I think is a great idea!

    Unlike Fira, the atmosphere in Firostefani is calmer and more family. Houses are smaller and have a more personal touch, altough there are a lot of hotels. While we were walking through the streets at night, the houses looked beautiful with street lamp lights illuminating a part of them. For me, the caldera and the volcano are best viewed from this village because it is set just at the edge of the cliff. I got a beautiful sight of Fira also from here. There are a few taverns in Firostefani with balcony to the caldera and a nice 19th century decoration. I recommend it for stay, too. It is a central spot in Santorini, but still away from noise.
