Thirasia
 
The habour of thirasia island
Thirasia is the only inhabited island in the area of the Caldera. It is so closed to Santorini yet very quite. Arriving in Thirasia you get the feeling that the time has stopped 20 years into the past.
An unspoiled island with only a few curious tourists actually staying there, waiting to discover a part of the old "Strogili" before the eruption.
     
  The houses and the bell towers of the churches are painted green, blue and yellow to compliment the multicoloured flowers of the landscape. During the day many tourists come to take a look at Thirasia and enjoy another view option of Santorini  
 
You can reach Thirasia by boat from the main port of Santorini (Athinios) from the old port of Fira and the port of Oia. Also there are daily excursions to the Volcano, Hot Springs and Thirasia.
 If you'd like to stay in Thirasia for a few days, you'll be impressed by the hospitality of the people and the lovely food. Simple lodging is available in the main village.
