Where is located the Port of Santorini Cruise Terminal

Cruise ships anchor and shuttles will take you to the dock. To reach Fira, you will have to take the cable car or climb the 600 steps, on foot or on the back of a donkey. Passengers who have booked an excursion with the ship are transported to a dock further south where coaches wait. Be careful to return to the ship in time since the lines for the cable car can be long if there are several ships in port.
