Santorini is a very popular travel destination that scores of travelers choose every year due to the scenic villages, exclusive views, fascinating nightlife and the well-known stunning sunset. During summer the island gets extremely busy and the roads can sometimes be congested. The road network is good enough and safe but there are some narrow and winding roads.

At the port, the capital and various spots there are car and motorbike rental agencies which constitute a good way to get around the island in comfort. The fact that the streets can be bustling demands extra attention. Bear in mind that a European licence is required and that Santorini is a right-hand traffic territory.

The most inexpensive and common way to move around is the public buses (KTELS) that during high season are frequent. The main bus station in near the central square of the capital Fira and provides all the connections between various destinations. There are daily routes to the most settlements and places of interest. You may find more information in the bus timetable below.

Another way is to take taxis which can be found outside the port and the airport, in Fira and in other locations as well. There are radio taxi services, too. The transportation is fast, convenient and more flexible but the drawback is that it’s expensive. As for alternative ways of transport, in this picturesque island there is the donkey ride option for a traditional experience. In addition, a cable car operates in Santorini, for a 3-minute impressive route from Fira to the old port and vice versa. Finally, in order to visit the volcano, the nearby island of Therasia or some remote beaches there are daily boat tours that depart from the old port in Fira or the port of Athinios and offer unique moments.
