Athens, the historical capital of Europe. The birthplace of democracy, arts, science and philosophy of western civilisation. Home of Plato, Socrates, Pericles, Euripides, Sophocles, Aeschylus. Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities. It’s recorded history spanning around 3.400 years and it is being inhabited since the 11th millennium B.C. E.

Most people who visit Greece for the first time are probably going to want to see the Acropolis and the famed sunsets of Santorini.

The flight between Athens and Santorini is 45 minutes.To book a flight early as Ryanair has some excellent prices like a 20€. The scenery as you fly over the Greek island is quite wonderful so make sure to book a window seat!

By the ship the price is about 45€ and about 7 hours from Piraeus.

The fast ferry from Athens to Santorini takes about 5 hours and stops at a couple of other islands along the way. Usually Paros, Naxos and Ios and sometimes Mykonos as well.

We love to travel on the slower Blue Star Ferries which takes around 8 hours. They are the biggest Ferries with restaurants, bars and a gift shop on board. They can take up to 2500 passengers and many cars, trucks and scooter.

Other operators are Seajets and Hellenic Seaways.
