Fira, Santorini.

Fira is the modern capital of the Greek Aegean island of Santorini. Fira is a city of white-washed houses built on the edge of the 400 metres (1,312 feet) high caldera on the western edge of the semi-circular island of Thera. The two main museums of interest are the Archaeological Museum of Thera and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera. The town also hosts a number of churches, including the Cathedral of Ypapanti and the Three Bells of Fira. From Fira there is a panoramic view of the 18 kilometres (11 miles) long caldera from southern Cape Akrotiri to northern Cape Ag. Nikolaos, plus the volcanic island Nea Kameni at the center with Thirassia Island. Large cruise ships anchor in the small harbor between Nea Kameni and Fira.(wikipedia)
