How To Come In Santorini

There is two ways to come to Santorini from Athens

Santorini By Ferry

Santorini is 5 to 9 hours from Athens by Ferry, depending the type of the ship you will choose to travel and the price range for the tickets per person is between 35 to 80 euros.
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.
