Santorini (Old) Cruise Port

One of the most memorable places in Greece, the volcanic island of Santorini - located in the Cyclades group - is a spectacular Mediterranean paradise known for its dazzling views, fine beaches and unforgettable sunsets. Without much need for modern amenities, the place is lined with historic sights, and more than enough natural and ancient wonderment to go around. It's no wonder why so many people love Santorini.

How to Get to Santorini

There are a few ways to get into Santorini, either by land or sea, depending on your budget and how much time you have to explore. By air, there is Santorini National Airport, which during the summer months flies directly to several destinations in Europe. If the water highway is your transportation method of choice, you can either grab a ferry from domestic locations in Naxos, Paros, or more commonly Piraeus. Big cruises will reach Santorini through the old port in Fira (take note: not the newer one located just 2 miles away in Pyrgos).

One Day in Santorini

Choosing what do here will be difficult to muss up. If you're looking for the historical route, the 3,500-year-old Minoan town of Akrontiri, and ancient Thira monastery are the way to go. Otherwise, for a little R&R there are more beaches than you'll know what to do with. Take a trip to the red, black or white beaches, or for a less crowded experience head to Vlichada Beach.

Port Information

The Old Port in Fira is designated specifically for cruise liners and, interestingly enough, if you do happen to arrive in Santorini by this means, the only way you will be able to get into town is by cable car or donkey. Otherwise, a smaller ferry is available to transfer you to the other port at Pyrgos. Feel free to get some shopping done at the harbor of the old port where you can buy souvenirs and other nice Greek trinkets.
