Fira a firm Greek holiday favorite

By Stathis Kousounis

The traditional settlement of Fira on the southern Aegean island of Santorini appears to be the most popular tourism destination among Greeks for the June 22-24 bank holiday weekend, according to travel search engine and hotel rate website trivago.gr.

In a list published on Wednesday, the site showed that the resort with the highest occupancy rate is picturesque Fira, at 77 percent. The average hotel rate in Fira stands at 149 euros per night during the three-day weekend.

Naxos ranks second on 76 percent, but its average rate is a much lower 43 euros per night. Hania has 64 percent occupancy, at a rate of 70 euros per night, while Thessaloniki is at 63 percent (77 euros) and Rhodes 57 percent (also with 77 euros). The top 10 also includes five other islands: Poros with a 51 percent occupancy rate, Myconos on 47 percent, Corfu 35 percent, Syros 29 percent and Skopelos 22 percent.

Myconos also has the highest average rate per night, at 194 euros.
