We first went up to the village by cable (funicular). It was a lovely place to see the panoramic view of the town and shop around. Visit to Oia is very tempting. By taxicab, it was E40.00 (RT) by bus about E1.20 only. We are not sure if there might be buses coming back, so we did not attempt to go. I wish that there will be a regular RT bus to Oia, so visitors (especially from cruise line) can visit the town without fear of not being able to get the bus ride back to the ship on time.
Don't Miss: The Village by cable ride (funicular) .

We were getting to pier via the tender. Given the water was rough the Captain decided to cancell the visit as it will be dangerous to proceed. Nonetheless he cruised the ship along the Amalfi Coast, Capri, etc. It was a very pleasant surprise from the Captain. Every body enjoyed the sailing and scenery. Every one was happy. He is really great..

Pros: The venue

Cons: The night clubs
