AND THE OLD PORT OF SANTORINI
Santorini has two
ports. Athinios port that is for ferry and
commercial boats and the Old port that is
only for cruise ship travelers. Athinios
port is located in the area of Pyrgos where
there is a car access and the Old port in
Fira where the only way up and down to the
town is the donkeys, the cable car or
to walk although we don't recommend walking.
All those people who
take a ferry boat individually from the
other islands or Piraeus, it is certain that
they will dock in Athinios port and they are
connections from Piraeus port (Athens), Ios,
Naxos, Paros, Crete, Mykonos, Tinos and
The ferry from Pireaus
takes 9 hours to come to Santorini and the
best company we have travelled with is
Blue Star Ferries.
The ticket is 40 euro per person
depending the class you will choose to travel but the
tourist class is equally great with the A' class.
Ferries that comes to Santorini port from
Athnes - Piraeus Port and the port of Rafina.
come to Santorini they might stop to some
other Cycladic Islands Like Syros, Paros
Naxos Ios, and more, connections to other
islands is a short stop. The cost to come to
Santorini with Ferry is
40 Euros and up. The duration, if you
come with the Blue Star Ferries is about 8 hours. If you take the Hydro Foils is
about 4 hours, but it cost more money (
about 70 Euros ) .
