This is the only sensible way to get from sea level up to the top and back and for anyone with walking difficulties it's a godsend. It's now 6 euros each way but is definitely worth it. It does get VERY busy, the answer is...More

Took Teleferico to Fira Old Port. I went on a weekday, noonish, and there was no waiting in line. The cost was 6 euros, per person, each way. I went to the car, and was 1 of 6 people, who went down. The views over...More

After a long walk down the path to the port, we where happy to be able to use this mode of transport to go back up to Fira. 6 euro well spent because climbing back up to Fira is not for the faint of heart.
