Port of Santorini (Athinios Port) Tours

Port of Santorini (Athinios Port)
One of the most-visited Greek islands, crescent-shaped Santorini is served by multiple cruise lines. While the island has two ports, Athinios Port—located midway along the island on the caldera side—is the only one that serves passenger liners. Athinios connects Santorini to Athens and islands such as Mykonos, Milos, and Therasia.

The Basics

A quick trip from Fira, Santorini’s capital city, Athinios Port enjoys a scenic locale flanked by vertiginous, volcanic slopes and narrow, winding roads. Though it’s one of the busiest ports in the region, Athinios can’t directly accommodate large cruise ships; passengers transfer to smaller vessels before arriving at the island. In the port area you’ll find basic amenities only, but regular buses and taxis can shuttle you around the island.

For a celebratory send-off, stop by one of the wineries located just minutes from the port.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • As Athinios Port can be hot and crowded during the summer, take plenty of water to keep yourself cool while you wait to board.
  • Book your ferry tickets well in advance of your trip, and arrive an hour before your scheduled departure time.

How to Get to Fira From Athinios Port
The port is roughly 6 miles (10 kilometers) from Fira. The most comfortable way to get around the island is by taxi, though rental cars and local buses are also available.

Port Information
Athinios Port is small and rather sparse, though you’ll find amenities such as travel agents, cafés, shops, a waiting room, and toilets. Greek is the local language, but English is understood widely. The local currency is the euro.
