The Santorini Galleries
Cruise ship passengers will know of the capital of Santorini, Fira, on the island of Thera where you go from the port (Skala) to the town up a steep cliff by cable car. The more adventurous may have ridden a donkey up the cliff, while the fitter visitors may have walked the many steep steps. Some visitors may have joined a day excursion to see the volcano and hot springs.
There is more to Santorini, which you will only find by visiting and staying for a while.
