Firostefani

Firostefani used to be a separate village, but now it comprises the quieter, more pleasant northern end of Fira. The name derives from Fira + Stefani (meaning crown in Greek) and the 10-minute walk between central Fira and Firostefani, along the caldera, is one of Santorini's highlights. From Firostefani's single white cliffside street, walkways descend to traditional vaulted cave houses, which are fast becoming pensions. Though close to the action, Firostefani feels calm and quiet and gives a different perspective on the volcano.
