About Santorini Ferry
The Cyclades Islands in Greece are a gorgeous collection of unique and beautiful islands. The southernmost area in this island
collection is Santorini (officially known as Thira). This is the island that most often adorns tourist brochures welcoming visitors with its
fantastic landscape. Guests will tell you that photographs can hardly do this place justice. Famous for its caldera, the collection of cliffs
bordering the Aegean Sea that in ancient times was an active volcano, Santorini is the Cyclades' most prized possession.
Some believe the Greek island of Santorini is the "lost island of Atlantis." Part of the Cycladic Islands in the Aegean Sea, Santorini was similarly destroyed by a powerful natural disaster when in 1500 BC, a volcano erupted, covering the island completely. Like Atlantis, the volcano destroyed a highly advanced and powerful civilization that lived in a city called Akrotiri. Uncovered by archaeologists in 1967, the city was surprisingly well preserved by volcanic materials, and today you can walk down ancient streets and admire houses with frescoes painted on the walls 3,600 years ago.
The modern towns of Santorini are perched on the tip of a half-submerged crater, witnesses to centuries of geological devastation. Ever stood on the edge of a volcanic crater? After peering over the cliff from Fira, the capital of Santorini, you'll find you can definitely answer, "yes" to this question. The tough part is getting up there, as the town is located straight up a 1,000 foot cliff, accessible only by a long switchback path, which you can climb on foot, donkey, or cable car.
With over a million tourists per year, Santorini is constantly packed. And the 7,000 residents of the island have made their home an inviting destination by opening shops, nightclubs and restaurants in abundance.
Almost all ferries now dock at Athinios port (Santorini's port near Fira), where buses meet each cruise boat and ferries, returning directly to the Fira station (the bus fare to Fira is 1,50 EURO); from the Fira station, buses depart for numerous other island destinations. Taxis are also available from Athinios the ferry port of Santorini.
