|Santorini is named from Santa Irini.|
But it is also known as Thira, which is also the name of the main town and port.
Truth be told, I don't really know which name is used by whom. I'm assuming that Thira is used by the locals, and Fira is somehow easier for the tourists to understand. But I could be completely wrong. The th and the f sounds are really similar. But to keep it simple, I'll just use Thira.
|The white on the cliff is Thira.|
You want to be careful about where you park, as they will tow you away without hesitation. But there are large lots of free parking around the main area of the town. From the lot we parked in, we could see the other side of the island.
|Santorini is actually quite small. But there's so much to do!|
