Fira is the main city on Santorini.  Simliar to Oia, the city itself is a maze of white washed tourist trap shops.  Wander through the throngs of tourists, dodge the ATVs while crossing the street and scurry past shop keepers and their cries of "Where are you from?"  There are restaurants everywhere, a breath taking view of the volcano, travel agencies and souvenir shops at every corner.  When you're ready to see the volcano take the cable car or a donkey ride down the cliff to the old port and join one of the many tour boats available.

I regret that after reviewing my pictures I did not take any that show the chaos of Fira, or the mazes of shops.  So the following will have to do.

 A view of the volcano from Fira.
