Late night arrival in Santorini

Hi All,

We have booked a hotel in Fira beginning on 9/25 but just learned that we can only ferry from Kos on 9/24. Our hotel is fully booked for that night. The only ferry arrives in Santorini at 1:10 in the morning. Can someone tell us which town is closest to the ferry port? Also will taxis be available that late? Lastly, does anyone know of an inexpensive hotel that might be willing to rent to us for only one night and check us in so late?

Thanks for any help you can offer,

Fira is closest. Taxis will be waiting and possibly the port bus to Fira. Check Villa Fotini, Anemomilos Villas and Anemomilos Suites, and they offer a free pick-up. Hotels are used to late arrivals.

We arrived from Kos last night at 1am and there were taxis and some hotel transfer buses. Some other transport but not exactly sure what. We jumped straight in a taxi for Perissa.

There are two port in Santorini, the old and the new one.

There are bus transfer you to Fira center from the new port (99%), it cost more time than taxi.

If you arrive the old port, just climb up to the Fira center.

From Fira bus station, you can buy a bus ticket to Perisa, it run during the day and night. Taxi cost so much than the bus (maximum 2,8 E).

Yes, there are two ports on Santorini.

However, the Old Port (aka Skala) is where the cruise ships dock and there is no road access.

The ferries dock at the new port, Athinios. As stated, there will be taxis and (maybe) the local bus.
