Arriving on Santorini, one of the most famous Greek islands, known for its stunning sunsets and scenery, white, red and black sand beaches, impressive traditional houses, balconies with views on the volcano and busy nightlife can be quite overwhelming. It is important to know your options when arriving on the island, as to make the most of your trip. If you wish to visit the town of Fira, the capital of Santorini and the biggest and most cosmopolitan settlement of the island, you have two transfer options; you can either take a cable car or a donkey ride. The most traditional, and more controversial option, is to take a donkey ride up to the top of the mountain. It will take around 35 minutes and costs €5. The more modern option is to take the cable car. The cable car takes only 13 minutes and also costs €5. Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Santorini at the same price as a regular taxi. Click here to see the cost.
