Fira is the capital (largest city) while Oia and Firostefani are 2 other towns. This is a brief description of these 2 places.  Firostefani, a suburb of the capital Fira (less than 1 km from the center), offering the same stunning views of the magnificent caldera, at a slight distance from all the action.  Firostefani also has a very picturesque square, and a beautiful church dedicated to St. Gerasimos, that is surrounded by cypress trees.  The stroll from Fira to Firostefani can be completed in roughly 20 minutes, although it usually takes at least an hour because of frequent pauses to enjoy the view. Oia is on the northern tip of the island and is about 11 km from Fira, built on a steep slope of the caldera. Oia is quieter than Fira, but easy enough to hop a bus or grab a taxi into town to visit the capital.  Its streets are charming narrow passageways that twist their way along the rim of the caldera, and down the slope of the cliff. There are plenty of tourist shops, but they are of a different, more artisan, quality than the more traditional tourist offerings of Fira, and there rare also a number of beautiful commercial galleries.

Sirince Village: This old Orthodox Village, 30 kilometers from Kusadasi, was once "Cirkince"(ugly). Indeed its inhabitants gave this name on the purpose as they did not want to be bothered by foreigners nor to share the beauty of their village. Still after years, visitors understood that the village was not ugly and called it "Sirince" (pretty). Today the village is a perfect synthesis of Turkish-Greek culture as of the 1920's; after the Turkish Independence War, people exchange between Greek and Turks has occurred and all the typical Greek houses, though they kept their original outside characteristics, have received the local layout inside. At Sirince Village you will have chance of seeing the local life at a village and purchasing some small local souvenirs and handicrafts. The village is also famous for its local grape and other fruit wines. During the lunch, mingle with the local people of the village as you will be a guest in their village for a simple cup of traditional Turkish coffee at the main coffee house of the village. Depending on the number of guests, a gypsy woman may read your fortune after you finish your coffee .

Subject: We're Back!

We just wanted to let you know we made it back home after our weeklong detour through Italy. Athens was fantastic. The tours were very good, and short of heading out to the islands, I can't think of a single thing we would have rather done while there.

Although we had an excellent time in Athens, Egypt was by far the highlight of our entire trip, including Italy. We just can't say enough
about Ahmed, Isis, Ashraf, and all our drivers. We simply could not have done the trip without their help. Ahmed was very professional, courteous, and helpful, and always went out of his way to make sure we were where we needed to be at the right time. Our Egyptologist guides, Isis and Ashraf, were both very knowledgeable and made our visit so much better with their endless supply of information. We wore out both days long before they did. We will definitely try to come back to Egypt when we have more time to spend.

Thank you so much for arranging the trip, allowing us to customize what we needed to, and putting us in touch with such good people. And please find attached pictures of us enjoying a camel ride. :-)

Some of the most popular restaurants in:

  • Athens : are Varoulko, Dionissos Zonars (just under the Acropolis), Strofi (near the Divani Palace)

  • Santorini: El Greco and Fanari (has great view) are good restaurants in Fira.
    Also Pyrgos is another nice one ... about 4 kilometers further inland
