Definitely the place for an aperitif and to watch the sun go down. It is delightful walking up to Franco's in Pygros (as opposed to the on in Fira). Wonderful view from the mountain top and Pygros is just idyllic

What a lovely place to sit and watch the famous sunset! I had a delicious Mojito and the music is a lovely touch. We visited twice in a week's holiday and would highly recommend.

If you wish to enjoy your drink at one of the best bars in the world in terms of view, go to Franco's. It is atmospheric, with wonderful music and a view to die for, Never mind the prices, it is well worth a visit.

We visited the bar as it was recommended to us by a friend who have visited here before ! It was very easy to find, it was clean and had an amazing view looking over the sea. Sipping away these great cocktails and enjoy the sunset! The classical music was very relaxing. It can be pricey but well worth it,... More

One of a kind bar were you can relax & chill out listening to classical music while watching the magnificent view. My personal favorite in santorini as i like a lot the Sangria drink. It could be less pricey though

Fabulous view, sipping cocktails to classical music. Sit away from other clubs so the music doesn't mix up too much!

My friend and I went here for a drink whilst on a day trip to Santorini from Crete. It was a scorching hot day, my feet and ankles were swollen and even though the entrance to the bar was down quite a few steps, the view looked spectacular so we took a chance. I'm so glad we did! The view... More

Located on the edge of the Caldera, giving you one one the best views in Santorini. Small place so probably crowded in the high season. The atmosphere was great, with relaxing classical music being played. Drinks are quite expensive but generous so the prices are not that bad considering what you get for the money. I think this is a... More
