The distance to the busy capital town of Fira is 1.5 kilometers - 15 minutes walk or a 2 minute bus ride. There are frequent buses both into Fira and to all beaches and other destinations from Karterados bus stop - which is 5 minutes walk from the Pension.
In Fira there are numerous shops, restaurants, bars and night clubs. Fira is the hub for night-life and shopping. The Old port with its 257 steps is where guests can take a donkey or cable car up or down to visit the small harbor or take a traditional boat trip to the volcano, Hot Springs, little island of Thirassia and Oia for a breath-taking sunset. There are several museums in Fira - Pre-historic Thira, archaeological, folklore and Megaron Gizi museum. A 5 minute bus ride away is a winery where visitors can tour the wine factory and enjoy wine-tasting whilst enjoying a fantastic view across the famous caldera bay. Also 5 minutes in another direction takes one to a wine museum for more wine-tasting ! [Santorini is famous for its wine - so there are many wineries around the island!]
In Karterados there are many traditional taverns, shops, bars, mini-markets, a laundry and a bakery - so there is really no need to go into town, if you don't want to. Visitors can relax and enjoy the village hospitality and local dishes whilst sampling a taste of Greek island style life.
