Passengers traveling by ferry to Thira, arrive at the old port of Santorini island below the homonymous village of Thira!
In the past, the ascent from the port to the village was made only by donkeys or by the long path of 250 steps. Today there is also a cable car available, a donation of Evangelos Nomikos foundation. All revenues from the cable car are given to the island's Communities for the execution of development work.
When traveling to the destination Thira you reach a port packed with life during the day since it’s the starting point for nearby island excursions. It’s also where passengers from cruise ships disembark so as to use the cable car and reach the settlement above. The most romantic ones can take a sea taxi from there and visit the settlement of Oia where you can watch the famous sunset. Leave with a ferry from Thira and go to the rocky island of Nea and Palea Kammeni to see the active volcano of Santorini whose last eruption took place in 1950. Continue your trip and get to Thirasia where you get a glimpse of the old traditional life of Santorini's Island. During your small stay at the port of Thira, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or something to eat since there are coffee shops and restaurants available.
