Firostefani is actually a part of Fira. In Greek Firostefani means the “crown” of Fira, the highest part of Fira. So, Firostefani is located at the northern and at the same time highest tip of Fira. It is within a walking distance to Fira. By following the pedestrians’ walking path that goes all along the sea of caldera you could reach the central square of Fira within 15-20 minutes. The walk, itself an attraction, is very enjoyable and peaceful, providing you with superb views over the Caldera, Volcano and the famous sunset. Needless to say that it is safe to walk 24h a day. If you want to reach Fira faster you could also stop a passing by taxi. By a Santorini Taxi you could reach Fira’s central square within two minutes.
The taxi’s fare should not exceed 5 EUR. You could also catch the Santorini local buses. It is a convenient option especially if you happen to be at Fira’s central square where the Santorini local buses’ terminal is located. You should opt for the bus that goes to Oia. Firostefani is located on the way of the bus from Fira to Oia. Please note, that you should specifically tell the bus’ driver or the fare collector that you want to stop to Firostefani. Otherwise, you would take the long ride to Oia. Firostefani’s bus station is on the Eastern façade of Agios Gerasimos church. Estimate an average fare of less than 2 EUR per person for Santorini local buses.
