View of the cliffside homes in Fira, Greece

Fira, the capital of the Greek island of Santorini, is a cosmopolitan hub with the whitewashed, cliffside houses so well known in the Mediterranean. Travelers are afforded a view of the still active Nea Kameni volcano. Those looking for a more modern experience in Fira can try delicious cuisines or spend the day at the island’s largest shopping center. But those interested in history can head to the prehistoric ruins of Akrotiri, or examine artifacts at the Museum of Prehistoric Thera. Photo from Chris Lawton
