If the weather is suitable, ie it is not very hot, you can reach Imerovigli by walking from Fira, following the old path, along the caldera. About in the middle of the route you will find another settlement, Firostefani.
Ideal time for a walk is early in the morning or late afternoon. It is worth the walk for the amazing view all the way. And if you get tired, on the way back you can take a bus or taxi.
For the more adventurous, it is recommended to visit the castle on the rock of Skaros – from a path with steps in about 20 minutes. Skaros was originally the capital of the island. The castle was badly damaged by the volcano and the earthquake later and now its ruins are there.
* Try the island’s specialties which are tomato meatballs, fava beans, fried white aubergines, sweet Vinsanto wine and generally local wines.
* There are many expensive restaurants on the island, so in order not to be surprised, always consult the posted lists.
* The taxi rank is located in the square in Fira- the prices of the routes are usually standard and you have to ask the cost in advance to know what you will pay.
* In Santorini you can go by boat from the port of Piraeus (about 8 hours by simple ferry and about 5 hours by speedboat). It is also connected by ferry to the islands of Paros, Naxos, Ios, Mykonos, Milos, Folegandros, Sikinos, Anafi, Kos, Rhodes and Heraklion, Crete.
