Getting to Santorini
The following are Web site links and information to assist once you are in Athens or in Santorini. Santorini has a small airport and most connections go through Athens. AGU received this information from other sources and suggest that you check with your travel agent when making air travel arrangements about the specifics.
- September is peak travel season in Greece and we advise you to make your travel arrangements soon.
- Most air travelers will arrive in Athens to get to Santorini.
- To get to Santorini from Athens, you have the following options:
- Connecting flights on Olympic or Aegean airlines (50 to 60 minute flights).
- Taking the Greek Seaways by Ferry. The following are options for a ferry
- 3 hour ride (An economy ticket is about €55.)
- 8–9 hour ride (An economy ticket is about €15.)
Ferries depart at the Port of Piraeus in Athens. You can take a taxi from the airport to get to the Port. Advance reservations on the boats are not required; but you can purchase these through your travel agent or from several agencies in Greece. Ferries from Athens to Santorini depart around 7:00 a.m. There are also one or two evening departures available but these arrive in Santorini the next day. The following Web sites provide information on Ferry companies:
