About Santorini, Greece

Home to black-sand beaches, prehistoric ruins at Akrotiri, vineyards producing refreshing whites and rosés, and two wildly photogenic cliff-hugging towns called Fira and Oia, Santorini will not disappoint.


What people said about this port:

"We recommend the donkey ride up( 5 euros) and cable car down( four euros)." in 16 reviews.

"Go to the black sand beaches and take the ride to Oia, it was worth the ride from the port." in 3 reviews.

Highlight of the trip - walked up and back on the donkey track! Top marks to P & O literature for recommending not using the donkeys for welfare reasons, it was apparent that very few English used them, mainly American and Japanese.

Our favorite stop for this cruise. Santorini is the typical Greece that you see in movies or TV. The white buildings and churches with the blue dome roof. The ship docks at sea and you have to take a tender to get to shore. We took the ship's excursion to visit the Village of Oia and wished we had more time. Beautiful views driving up the mountain and we saw donkeys crossing the street. Lots of cute shops and places to eat. We enjoyed brunch and then walked the cute little streets of shops. Our bus took us to Thira which is located at the top mountain/cliff. Breathtaking views, deep blue water with more restaurants, shops galore, pedicures (with little fishes in the water). The tour included a ride down from Thira to the sea level on a gondola which they call a "cable car" takes you from the top down to sea level.

From tender pier take the local tour boat to Oia for blue domes as seen on travel posters, then bus to Thira (included). Walk down with the donkeys to tenders, ride a donkey, or wait in a long line for cable car.

If you are going to the picture perfect Oia (a must!), best tip is after you get off the tender there is a company right there (aegeantraveller.gr) that sells boat tickets 15€ and take you to Oia which also include bus transportation back to Fira. This way you don't have to wait for the small cable to go up to Fira (or take the donkey or hike the 587 steep and smelly donkey path) and then have to take a taxi (25-30€ one-way) or bus to Oia.
