cruise in July 2010

by sarcia

Hi

In july im visiting santorini by COsta Allegra Cruise and i would like to know if from the port (Oia Village)to go in the centre of the town were I can find shops how to get there?

Thanks

There is one bus that takes you straight to the centre!

Journey time 20 minutes.

There are plenty of cheap taxis around Santorini as well as buses.
It is also possible to walk- a fairly longish walk, but it is a cliffside walk, so very pretty.

One thing about the buses: will be very packed/crowded :(

You are mistaken about the port. You will NOT be coming ashore at Oia Port. There is no Oia Port for cruise ships. You will either be coming ashore at the new port of Athinios or at the old port below the main village of Fira. If you come ashore below Fira you will take the cable car up the cliff to the center of the town where the shops are. PLEASE DON'T RIDE THE POOR ABUSED DONKEYS! If you come ashore at Athinios you can take a taxi to Fira to the shops. If you want to go to Oia it will be best if you take a taxi, as the buses will be full and passengers get very aggressive to find a seat when the bus begins to load.

Brotherlove- that is correct. We arrived by ferry (Athinios)and there are taxis.
But stayed near Oia area, and could see the Cruiseliners offloading and taking passengers to Fira Port. The cable was working.

Taxi is best. When we were there in Sept 2008 we used to watch the ships tenders ferry the passengers to the landing at Thira, then watch them wait for the cable car. Very crowded in the streets and shops when the cruise boats visit.

Good Luck,
Mike

Travel Tips for Santorini Island

A Island Like No Other

by 88Starflite

I would say the Red Beach and Atkrotiri would top my lists on the Favorites. But then everything else would be very close behind. I would say it's the people I met along with the beauty of the island. And not to leave out the feeling that I got just thinking of how the acients must have lived and how advanced they were. Oh, then you can't leave out the Volcano, which accounts for nearly all the island from on time or another.

Traditional house

by oriettaIT

Before the big heartquake in 1956 destroyed a big part of the villages, mostly of the houses were carved in the vulcanic stone. Now almost every house is new but here and there you can still see some parts of the old style houses.

Santorini wineries

by Lilasel

Santorini is a wine Name of Origin and its wines are distinct and unique.

Santorini's vines are different than anywhere else due to the unique way they are raised, in a design reminiscent of a woven basket. This is an art that the local growers have perfected through the centuries to deal with the unusual prevailing weather conditions.

Due to the size of the island and the weather conditions (windy, sunny, and dry throughout the year), local wineries produce only limited quantities (about 300-500 kilograms per 1,000 square meters of land) of very distinctive wines, with strong dry mouths. Most of the wineries are located in Megalochori. The most important local wineries are:

* Boutaris (the top winery in Greece)www.boutaris.gr

* Gavalas winery has been around for more than 100 years
www.gavalaswines.gr

* Antoniou winery

Two Girls...way too much luggage...

by yaya15923

Depends on how you are getting to the island. I flew from Athens so you are restricted to the amount of luggage you are allowed to check-in. I had a full size, a carryon and a backpack which I kept on my back at check-in, I also used it as a day pack for hiking around the island. Of course you will want to shop a little so make sure to leave room for souvenirs. Shoes: I ended up wearing three out of the seven pairs of shoes I packed. Flat dress sandals which I wore every single night, hiking sandals for the day and flip flops for the beach...that's it. Never unpacked my heels, you'll break your ankle on the streets of Fira and the winding paths.

Clothing - yes you can wear jeans at night, no you will not get funny looks, nobody will say "oh you must be american" A wrap or light jacket for evenings - it was September and the days were hot and the evenings chilly (and windy). There were a couple of laundry places nearby - about 10 euro a load - you drop off in the morning, pick up in the evening. Had I known about these places, I certainly would not have packed so much. Bring OTC meds like aspirin, Tums, Pepto...if it's an unfamiliar environment who knows how your body will react so allergy meds should be packed just in case. Of course bring your favorite shampoo, soap, etc. Most hotels have hair dryers so leave yours at home, email the hotel to make sure. I brought my dslr, two lenses and a digital point and shoot and three 4GB memory cards. Used my dslr for the day and naturally you don't want a bulky camera for the evening so the point and shoot was perfect.

Home made wines

by Orkaena

Of course there are special hired visits to the most important wineries of the island. But one day, after a visit the Museum of Akrotiri, a young woman with a wagon and a donkey was selling very cheap home made white wine beside the museum main door. The bottles looks with no tags, no label, no nothing. Clean bottle with wine inside, thats all.
Of course I bought two bottles of this quite muddy white wine. I opened one bottle in my rented house in Oia. Great experience. Sweet, strong and almost frozen, after the second glass I was extremely scared because a earthquake was shaking the whole island. Nice.
