By bus or taxi you travel to Thira, the capital of the island. You can either stop to explore the town or start walking right away.

Walk from Thira to Oia along the caldera where you have a magnificent view of the sea and the white washed villages. During the walk you can see the layers of the volcanic stone that correspond to several outbursts in the volcano. The walk is mainly on paved roads and paths, with unpaved sections between WP 22 to 24, and for nearly three kilometres between WP 26 to 29 (on your hard-copy maps).
