How to Get to and Around Santorini

Santorini is a dramatic, cliff-filled island in the Aegean Sea. Fringed with black, red and white pebble beaches, its landscape was forever changed by a major volcanic eruption over 3,500 years ago. The legacy of this event is endless rocky, ruggedly romantic vistas that are particularly stunning at sunset.

It is very easy to get around Santorini. If you choose to walk, you will be rewarded by many stunning coastal and cliff views. As well as this, public buses are cheap and stop at all the main visitor attractions. Bear in mind though that there are no set schedules for buses. If you choose to rent a car then there are a number of major providers on the island, including Budget Rent-A-Car, Avis and Hertz. U.S. citizens who wish to drive in Greece will need an International Driving Permit as well as a valid U.S. license. The country is right-hand drive.

When traveling to your destination from the airport, you can hire a car at the arrivals hall or alternatively, access a wide range of transport choices, from shuttle buses to taxis to VIP limousines.

What Are the Must-Sees in Santorini?

While in Santorini, aim to visit the ruins of the Akrotiri Bronze Age village, which is a 20-minute drive from the center of the island and is rumored to be the original Atlantis. Other unmissable sights include the picturesque Santorini Caldera volcanic crater and Imerovigli village, which boasts a jaw-dropping sloping vantage point that has earned it the nickname ‘the balcony of the Aegean’.

Hidden gems of the island include the brilliant red sand and gorgeous clear waters of Red Beach (Akrotiri Beach), so you could maybe visit it after seeing the ruins. The hiking trail between the two main towns of Oia and Fira takes two and a half to three hours and is particularly stunning at sunset. Additionally, you might want to visit Pyrgos, a pretty village that is still off the beaten tourist trail but has wonderful views, winding paths, churches, galleries and vineyards to enjoy. You can reach it by foot from the center of Santorini in around 45 minutes.
