Location & Directions

Fira, the Capital

Less than 10 km from the island’s international airport, Fira is a picturesque town boasting narrow alleys and Venetian manors.

You have to climb 600 steps from the old port where many cruise ships dock to reach its centre at the summit of the caldera.

The cosmopolitan heart of Santorini undoubtedly beats at Fira, with its serpentine alleys lined with museums, blue-domed churches, boutiques, jewellery stores, nightclubs, bars and fancy restaurants.


We highly recommend you choose our swift transportation service from the airport or the port so that you may start your vacation quickly, on the best possible footing.

A driver will be waiting for you at your point of arrival, carry your luggage and drive you to your suite so that you can relax and get ready for a unique experience. However, if you would rather skip this service and reach the hotel by your rental car, please make sure to print this map and the analytical directions well before your departure so that you have them with you when you arrive on the island.

In any case, don’t hesitate to contact our concierge who is standing by, eager to help you plan your transportation from your place of origin to the island of Santorini and the welcoming entrance of Adamant Suites.
