Fireworks??

Hi all!

I've heard there will big firework displays on the 15th August, is this true? And if so, where would be the best place to see them?

Many thanks!

From any vantage point overlooking the caldera. They are out on the volcano. Fira would put you closest.

I happen to be arriving at Santorini on the 15th. What time is this firework display, is it at night?

And another thing, I read that this is a big festivity in Greece. Will everything be open in Santorini, or nothing at all? As it falls on a weekend, will the island be crowded with people coming over from mainland Greece?

(Sorry to hijack the thread!)

Everything will be open and everywhere will be crowded. This is the busiest time of the year on Santorini.

Is there somewhere quiet with a nice view, along the way between Fira and Oia, so we can see the fireworks from?

Just between you and me! ;)

There are going to be a lot of people looking for the 'perfect' spot so you won't be all alone, but it will be most quiet in Imerovigli or anywhere on the path between Imerovigli and Oia, which is about 5 miles long.

The firework display is on the night of the 16th

It starts around 8.30pm and usually lasts for 30-45 min (depends on the budget)

There are may ways to see the show - The best place will be in front of the volcano at Fira. The other option is to take a boat ride and see the show at sea level as long as the weather is calm

Have fun

I think they usually start around 9.30 pm. We have seen the display twice before and watched from our balcony in Imerovigli. It was really enjoyable.
