About Santorini

Santorini is famous not only for its natural beauty but for its cosmopolitan lifestyle with a vigorous nightlife and various restaurants and cocktail bars along with fantastic accommodation facilities with views over the Caldera.

Santorini was destroyed by a powerful volcanic eruption in 1500 B.C. covering the island completely and destroying a highly advanced and powerful civilization (Akrotiri) that lived in the city at the time. However, this eruption created an unrivalled wild landscape with enchanting views and attractions that now make Santorini a must see place.

Stunning clean beaches with black shining pebbles and rugged landscape in the background coupled with black, white and red sands make Santorini a truly unforgettable experience. Famous for its "Caldera", the collection of cliffs bordering the Aegean Sea that in ancient times was an active volcano, Santorini is the Cyclades' most prized possession.

About Piraeus

Piraeus has been inhabited for over 4000 years and has seen history come and ago, including the incredible Ancient Greek Empire.

    Late but no option
    • Unfortunately on the dates we wished to travel we had no choice but to book with Sea Jets. They seem to run more frequent trips than other companies which is a plus. Despite having booked two tickets at once well in advance, my Mum (who was visiting me from NZ for only 9 days) and I were sat on opposite sides of the ferry for the entire 6+ hours so lost a day of our time together which was a bit disappointing. In addition, the ferry was an hour behind schedule when it arrived in Santorini and almost two hours behind schedule when we arrived at the port in Athens. Apparently this is not an uncommon occurrence so factor a bit of leeway into your plans.

    Santorini to Piraeus
    • Economy seats were not comfortable - just a long bench for a lot of people. Otherwise it was a good journey. Punctual and the staff were friendly.

    Just like the airplane, not possible to go to deck..
    • just like airplane, no possible to go to deck, nowhere to go compared with big ferry, only few sockets. Arrived to final destination with one hour delay.

    Comfortable cruising
    • Excellent trip to athens from Santorini, far better than the high speed Sea Jet.

    Smooth sailing
    • The trip itself from Santorini to Pireaus went smoothly under a full moon sky and calm waters. In late November, the ferry had plenty of room. I would consider taking the ferry trip again, or using Blue star for another ferry trip for other destinations.
