While Oia may be the prettiest village in Santorini, Fira is the island's main town with the island's handiest service, best museum, and the hub for transportation around the islands. But, just because it's functional doesn't mean it's not incredibly scenic!
After seeing Oia, Chris and I went back to the boat to pick up our little ones to explore Fira all together. We hopped on another tender and made the short trip to shore.
From the Old Port there are three ways to get up to town: take a cable car, hike up 587 steep steps, or ride a donkey up those steps. We went with the speed and comfort of the cable car.
Fira has a charm all its own with a cozy labyrinth of streets that burrow between the main traffic street and the cliff edge.
Yummies. We got some baclava in Mykonos that was pretty darn good.

Doors with no walls around them! | Peeping Chris.
Restaurants with impeccable views.
But, to us it was heaven. Chris watched the sunset from the top of the boat.
