Santorini can be reached from most international airports via Athens. Nearly all international scheduled flights arriving in Athens allow adequate time for making the connecting flight to Santorini. The flying time from Athens to Santorini is approximately 40 minutes.

Numerous charter flights from different European Cities fly directly to the island during the summer period. During the same period Santorini is also connected with flights to and from Thessaloniki, Mykonos and Heraklion (Crete).

Another way to reach the island is by a regular ferry boat service from the ports of Piraeus, Crete and almost all the Cycladic islands. The boat trip from/to Piraeus takes approximately 5 – 9 hours depending on the ferry and the ports of call.

Daily high speed boats are also available -only during the summer period- leaving from the port of Piraeus and from numerous other Cycladic islands and Crete. The trip lasts about 4 – 5 hours.
