"The ferries arrive in..." Greece Things to Do Tip by tak_pap

Greece Things to Do: 889 reviews and 1,495 photos


The ferries arrive in Santorini daily from Piraeus, Crete, Rhodes and other islands in the Aegean. On the island there is also an airport connecting you with Athens (one hour trip), Thessaloniki, Mykonos, Heraklion (Crete) and Rhodes.

After you arrive in Athenios, the main port of Santorini, you can take the bus, a taxi or rent a car and visit Fira, the capital of the island.

If you arrive on a cruiser or a yacht you can also stop at the old port of Fira and then take the cable car or walk the 566 steps, climbing upwards on the rocks.
