trip to Santorini Island

by yamats

What is the best way to go to Santorini Island from Athens?

trip to Santorini Island


As we know very well, Santorini is an island and there are only two ways to reach an island: by boat (it takes time and can be quite relaxing and refreshing) and by plane (the fastest one, but more expensive).

The cloice is yours: ask your pocket!

Depending on when you plan to go you might be able to catch one of Aegean Airlines promotional 'saver' fares, which works out to be about the same price as the least-expensive economy ferry ticket. They go fast and are probably no longer available for this season, but check the Aegean Airlines website to be sure.

Personally I like the overnight ferry - the Santorini Express (I'm assuming it's still running). That has the advantage of giving you a night's accommodation whilst you travel and getting up in the morning to catch the dawn as the boat wends it way through the islands is more than worthwhile. You can book a cabin or just take a sleeping bag and sleep on deck. The sleeping bag option is my "best way" ;)

I think that the nicest (and cheapest) way to get to Santorini is by Blue Star Ferry. There is one that leaves Athens (from Piraeus port) at about 7.30am, has a stop at Paros to offload and pick up passengers, then goes on to Naxos (again to collect passengers) and then arrives at Santorini at about 3pm.
The ferries are very comfortable, with restuarants, TV , and indoor & outdoor seating. The scenery along the way is exquisite, and its a very relaxing way to travel to Santorini, giving you a glimpse of Paros & Naxos.
The return route will be the same.
There are taxis at Santorini harbour which will take you to your accommodation, or arrange with hotel for a pick-up. No extra costs usually.

Athens Tip

by AldenM1

We started hiking up to the Acropolis like good little tourists. As we walked through the gate we encountered an American woman who had turned around, exasperated, to look for her husband. He was on the outside of the gate, and he yelled up to her in a very disgruntled voice, 'Honey, you're just going to have to hold on. This woman won't let me bring my beer up there with me, can you believe it?' Gotta love fellow tourists.

Changing of the guards

by Kodi01

Look at the Greek soldiers, pom pom shoes and traditional uniform skirts. My fondest memory of this event was scooting around trying to get the best picture as the Captain was telling the crowd to step back and he also was giving the soldiers direction what to do..........

Piraeus is one of the largest cities in Greece. It has been the port of Athens since ancient times. Contemporary Piraeus, actually the same city with Athens, constitutes the Southwest part of the four million habitants city.
Piraeus Central Port is the largest, busiest and most important port in Greece. It is the gate to Argo-Saronic islands, Northeast Aegean islands, Dodecanese, Cyclades, and Crete. The Southeast side of the port docks the International ferries and Cruise ships next to the Passengers Terminal and the Customs office. Each of the many competing shipping companies has agents at the quayside, where you can book and buy your tickets.

History and Hospitality

Do not listen to anything negative that people say about this city! Athens is a densely populated, bustling place. I did not find it any worse for wear than many of the other major cities I have visited at home and abroad. I really get angry when I hear people say that it is dirty and smoggy and not worth a visit. Those people have missed the entire purpose of a trip here and probably only saw Athens from the comfort of an air conditioned tour bus before getting on a ferry and heading to the islands! After dinner, ouzo and dancing in the streets I wandered up to Aeropagus Hill just above the Agora and right below the Acropolis. I sat on the slippery rocks for several hours sharing a bottle of wine with strangers and singing familiar songs with locals and people from all over the world. It was a very unifying experience. I was even more delighted with a display of fireworks off in the distance celebrating the Olympic torch leaving Greece and heading for Atlanta.
