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.

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:
