HOW TO GET AROUND SANTORINI
By Bus: You will find buses to all the towns but from there on you will need to walk from there onwards. Also, buses are not always on time here.
Car Rentals: You can rent a car but you will need an international license and the traffic is quite erratic, so avoid this as far as possible.
By Scooters and Quad Bikes: These are the best way to get around the island on your own. You will easily get them on hire and it shouldn’t be a problem getting around on them either.
By Taxis: There aren’t many taxis so it is better to reserve a guide and a taxi in advance during the planning stage of your visit. But this is a convenient and easy way to travel.
Hiking or walking: Hiking or walking is ideal when exploring sites like the ancient Thira or Akrotiri.
