30-50 minuten

It's possible to walk from the old port to the center of Fira at an altitude of 300 meters. There's a paved road with 566 steps. This road is very steep and there's no shade. Better avoid the hike during the hottest part of the day and only do it when you are in a good shape.

TIP: You can also go up this way on the back of a donkey. This costs € 5 per person (single). Down at the harbor you will see and smell automatically where to go. The trip takes about 15 minutes. In summer it can be very busy, which is not always without danger on the small and sometimes slippery road.


Funicular from the cruise port to the city center of Santorini

The most comfortable way to beat the cliffs at Fira is by cable car. If you come ashore by tender boat, you will see the entrance on the left side of the wharf. There run 6 cabins with 6 passengers each on and off. So normally the waiting time is not so bad, though at peak times, there can be big lines. A ticket costs € 5 per person (one way).

TIP: Take the cable car to the top and on your way back descend via the walking trail. So you combine the best of both.
