Arrival to Santorini

Santorini By Ferry

Santorini is one of the most famous island of Greece, and for that reason, the ship connections during the summer season are very common. During summer time, many ships make daily trips from the ports of Piraeus and Rafina (both located near Athens)to Santorini. The classical ferry route from the port of Piraeus is Piraeus Paros Naxos Ios - Santorini. Santorini also has many connections with the other islands of the Cyclades and the Aegean (Mykonos, Anafi, Amorgos, Naxos, Paros, Ios, Rhodes, Crete, etc). A classical ferry needs around nine hours to reach the port of Santorini, seven hours with the modern Blue Star Ferries and around four to five hours with the high-speed boats or hydrofoil.

If you take a trip by cruise boat, the experience will surely leave you with lasting memories. The main port of Santorini is Athinios, where buses and taxis meet each entrance to transport passengers to Oia, Fira, and elsewhere. All vehicles climb up a very steep, winding road (it makes seven 180 degree turns) to get anywhere from Athinios.

Santorini By Plane

The airport of Santorini is located near the Kamari village and next to the beach of Monolithos, eight kilometres Southeast of Fira, with regular flights from Athens by Olympic Airways and Aegean Airlines. Almost all of the international flights which land at the airport of Athens permit the connecting flight to Santorini. The time of flight from Athens to Santorini is about 30 minutes.

During the tourist summer season, many agreement flights land directly at the airport of Santorini from many European cities. In this period, the island of Santorini has a great number of flights scheduled to and from Mykonos, Rhodes, Crete and Thessaloniki.
