1/2 day in Santorini

by pigott

I will be taking my parent and parent in-laws to a cruise in Nov 2009. The cruise will arrive in Santorini @ 2pm and leaving @ 10pm. Is Fira far away from where the cruise docked? Should we take a Taxi? Any sight that we should not miss? Thank you in advance for your help!!

The cruise ship doesn't dock. It anchors offshore and you'll be tendered ashore in a smaller boat to a wharf below Fira. You will then need to take the cable car up the cliff, there's no road, or you'll walk the steps if you're physically fit. PLEASE don't ride the poor abused donkeys. Once you're up in Fira take a taxi to the most beautiful village of Oia for a look around, then you can return to Fira for some more exploring and shopping before it's time to go back down the cliff in the cable car to catch the tender back out to your cruise ship.

One item to add to Lee's excellent comment is that if you do choose to walk up or down the steps, BEWARE of the donkeys. Going up the poor things just march along and you can get out of their way easily enough, but if they are heading down and it's anywhere close to what they think is dinner, watch out as they will "trot" down the hill.

One option is to rent a car and take a drive around the island. The island's road system is quite adequate. I suggest that you pre arrange for a hire car to be made available for you at your landing spot. The car company should provide you with a tourist map (make sure you ask when booking anyway). You can cover points of interest like Red beach and Perissa and also do the vineyards if people are into wine. Please do make sure that you catch the sunset over the caldera - it's spectacular (weather permitting).

thank you all for your help.

One more question, is Akrotiri worth going, is it far away?

Re: 1/2 day in Santorini

by brotherleelove

Sorry, Akrotiri has been closed indefinitely since September, 2005 due to a partial roof collapse.

Re: 1/2 day in Santorini

What a pity! I am surprised, Greece architectural is usually quite good.

Another question.
How long is the ride from Fira to Oia? Is it easy to get a Taxi? How much is it approximately? I am taking 6 seniors with me and just want to make sure they don't need to walk too much and have enough time to catch the boat back to the cruise. Many thanks.

Oia is 7 miles from Fira. Taxis are usually plentiful but November is after the season ends so it's possible that some drivers will not be working then. Taxis hold 4 passengers and the fare will be 15 euro to Oia.

Travel Tips for Santorini Island

The Commercial Part of Santorini

by greekcypriot

The Commercial part of the island is the Caldera with the villages of Thira, Imerovigli, Firostefani and Oia.
Oia is perched so far above the sea like a painting. It is like three islands. And exactly it is here in this part which is the most commercial of all and is completely dependent on it's image to attract the visitors.

You will be impressed with the beauty of these towns. You will carry these pictures with you throughout your lifetime!

See some beautiful photos I have taken!

Santorini Museums

by Jmill42

There are a few museums on Santorini. Obviously, they deal mostly with the contents and artifacts of Akrotiri. The two main museums are the the Museum of Prehistoric Thera and the Archaeological Museum. There is also a Naval Museum and the diehard museum addicts there are a few other minor museums. The timeline covered by these museums generally range from the Archaic to the Roman period. Admission to the Prehistroic and Archaeological Museums are covered on the same ticket and cost 8 Euro for adults, or 4 Euro for students.

Check my Must See pages for descriptions of these two museums, the only one's I saw.


by ncoutroulis

It's nice to see that as commercial as Santorini is, there are still some traditions that live on, no matter what. Donkeys still make the trip up and down the steep hills that lead from the Sea, to the village of Oia.

Hallo Bar - Cheapest Beer in Town?

by johngayton

The further away you get from the caldera the cheaper things like hotels and meals become. This is also true of beer. Bars with terraces overlooking the volcano such as "Tropical" and "Classico" will charge as much as 6 or 7 Euros for a draught beer and almost as much for a small (330ml) bottle.

If you just fancy a pleasant cold one in the afternoon then take a wander up the hill towards Firostefani. Roughly where Fira ends and Firostefani begins you'll find this little bar on the left-hand side of the main road. I discoveredit because it was the nearest bar to my hotel and I would usually stop off for a swift one (or three) when popping back in the afternoon to freshen-up for the evening. Service was always friendly, the beer about 3 Euros and the chatty barman happily insisted on taking this pic.

It also does cheap eats such as Souvlaki and Gyros but I never got round to eating here.

Never leave for 'home' without it...

by mapakettle about Vin Santo Wine...(ahhh)

Our driver from Dameia Palace Hotel was wonderful. Great fellow.

After we checked out of the hotel, he took us to meet our ferry, but made a detour first to the place where Vin Santo wine is produced. Vin Santo wine is a sweet dessert wine produced by the tiny sun dried red grapes grown on Santorini. These grapes have very little liquid contained within, but the juice is very sweet, very pure. I have tasted nothing else like it in my life.

The location of this winery is fantastic. As you can see from the picture it over looks a vast blue sea, sitting on top of the steep cliff. Surprisingly, it is located on the main road to the ferry docks. Don't miss it. Great photo op. I bought two bottles of Vin Santo wine, two different vintages, and Ma Kettle and I have sampled just the cheaper bottle to date (twenty two euro). It was wonderful. The other bottle was 27 euro, so we should be in for even more of a treat.
