Semi Private Standard | Santorini Catamaran Cruise with Greek buffet and drinks

905 reviews
Full of hidden coves and snorkeling spots, Santorini’s gorgeous coastline is best seen from the water. This catamaran cruise takes you to a series of beaches and landmarks that can only be reached by boat, with time to soak in the island’s volcanic hot springs, too. Plus, with two tour times to choose from and round-trip transport, food, and snorkeling gear all included, this tour is extremely convenient for any traveler wanting to add it to their itinerary.

Nice church! Not the best in town, but still it worths a visit! Quite central, easy to find! Obviously fresh, a good way to experience spirituality while defending yourselves from hot Greek summer! :D

The is in the Catholic neighborhood. First built in 1823, it has been rebuilt in 1970 as it was destroyed during the 1956 earthquake. Worth a visit if in Fira.

This small, almost tiny “cathedral” is located towards the north end of Fira, is the first Catholic cathedral on Santorini. It was built in 1823 but severely damaged in the 1956 earthquake; it was a 20-year restoration and was opened again in 1975. It has a central nave with 2 side aisles and 3 entrances. One of the side chapels is dedicated to the patron saint of the island, Saint Irene, (Santorini). The campanile was erected in 1893.

Small Catholic Cathedral in the heart of Orthodox country! A great refuge from the weather adn quiet contemplative place to pray and reflect in the middle of Fira. Nicely decorated and well maintained - great views of harbour from the front plaza and near the Cable Car.
