Location & Access

The Hotel Nomikos Villas are ideally located on the caldera part of Firostefani, almost atop the cliffs.

Access is fairly easy with a number of tavernas and restaurants being only a 2-minute walk away.
Nomikos Villas can be easily reached with a short 5 minute drive from the centre of Thira.
Alternatively one could easily reach us with a slight uphill walk or around 15 minutes.



On an island brimming with stunning natural diversity, Fira, its capital, takes centre place with its white-washed houses, built on the edge of a 400 meter high caldera, on the western edge of the crescent island of Thera.

Indulge in visiting both the Archaeological Museum of Thera, located 30 metres east of the cable car entrance, and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera, found at the southeast corner of the White Orthodox Cathedral of Ypapanti. The latter was built on the site of an old church that got reduced to ruins by the 1956 Amorgos earthquake. And that’s just two out of a number of other churches scattered across town, such as the Cathedral of Ypapanti and the Three Bells of Fira.


Access to Fira is mainly done by its eastern side road starting from its port and climbing up the meandering path on foot or on the back of a donkey, or alternatively, by cable car catching it at its terminal just across the port. Fira’s central square (Plateia Theotokopoulou) features bus and taxi stations, banks and pharmacies.


Fira boasts a panoramic view of the 18 km long caldera, panning from Cape Akrotiri in the south to Cape Ag. Nikolaos in the north, placing centre stage for the volcanic island of Nea Kameni at the very middle of the crescent shaped Thirassia Island. Large cruise ships dock the small harbour stretching between Nea Kameni and Fira.
