Santorini Port

Car rental Santorini Port

Santorini (Thira) International Airport (IATA: JTR) is an airport in Santorini, Greece, located about 6 km southeast of Thira city centre.

The island of Santorini is located in the south of Greece. There are several towns and cities on the island. The first of these is the island’s capital, Fira.

Fira is a town of whitewashed houses, built on the edge of a 400-metre high caldera on the western edge of the island of Thera. The two main attractions in the town are the Thera Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera in the southeast of the white Orthodox Cathedral of Ypapanti. The town is home to several churches, including Ypapanti Cathedral and the three bells of Fira. Fira offers panoramic views over the 18 km long caldera from Cape Akrotiri to the northern part of Cape Ag. Nikolaos and the volcanic island of Nea Kameni in the middle of the island of Thirassia. Large cruise ships anchor in the small port between Nea Kameni and Fira.

Another interesting settlement is Pyrgos Kallistis or simply Pyrgos, which literally means ‘tower’. It is located 7 km from the island’s capital, Fira. It is built like an amphitheatre on a hill with a magnificent view of Santorini in almost every direction. At the top of this hill are the ruins of a castle (Kasteli) which was once the administrative centre of the island. Pyrgos is a typical example of medieval architecture with narrow, labyrinthine streets, fortress-like walls and hidden passages. Nowadays, it is one of the least touristic villages of Santorini, an ideal destination for tourists seeking peace and quiet.

Emporio or Emporeio, also known as Nimborios, is located 12 km from Fira, near the Profitis Ilias mountain range. Emporio includes the old Goulas castle and some churches such as St Nicholas Marmaritis. Another interesting settlement and place of interest is Oia, also known as Ia. Here you should visit the Naval Museum, located in a 19th century castle.
