Plan to spend the day wandering the streets, enjoying lunch on a restaurant patio overlooking the beautiful scenery, and shopping. Loved Santorini!

Try Lolita's gelato in Oia! Very tasty...and get off the boat early. The cable cars have limits on how many people can get up and down in an hour.

After tendering to shore, take a water taxi to Oia. That should avoid long lines for the gondola. You can work your way back to Fira from there via shuttle buses.

When you reach the Island, take the boat ride to Oia with a return bus trip across the island back to Firia. All of this is included for only $15 Euro.

Oia (the town with all the blue and white buildings) is actually a bit far to get to. Take advantage of the services offered locally from local vendors offering a speed boat trip or bus tour to get there, otherwise it can be a little challenging. Don't go too early in the morning, there is absolutely nothing open and not much to do!

It takes at least 1 hour to get from the boat to the port... Up the cable car.... And to the main area of Santorini... And on the way back... The cable car lines are ridiculous! At least an hour to two to get back to the boat. So plan that into your schedule. Oh... But you HAVE to visit the black or red sand beaches... Just to say you were there!

After tender, consider taking the boat around the island that meets-up with a coach that takes you to the exact spot as the cable-car. Cable car lines are 1 to 1-1/2 hours which leaves little time at the top. The coach option not only get you there quicker, but you get to see the other part of the island. I think boat/coach option is 20 Euros.
