Know before you go
Individual cruise passengers disembark for Santorini by tender boats arriving only at the old port of Fira.
To find the exit of the cable car in Fira follow these steps:
Take a tender boat from your cruise ship
Once ashore, go to the cable car
- Pay a ticket of 6 Euros per person (one way) take a cable car ride up to Fira town (3 min.)
Leave the cable car building.
- Behind the gate our guide or driver will be waiting for you holding an Omega Travel sign with your name on it..
Only passengers arriving to Santorini in organized groups or acquiring shore excursions on board disembark at Athinios port. These travelers get off the ship first. All the rest are considered to be individual travelers and disembark only at the old port of Fira.
The donkeys arrive at a different place in Fira, not at the cable car exit.
The stairs bring you next to the cable car exit but we strongly recommend using the cable car for your convenience.
