Santorini or Thira (as well as Anafi) are the most southern islands of Cyclades and especially Santorini is one of the most popular summer destinations worldwide. There are 2 ports in Santorini; the first port is located in Fira (capital of the island) and the other port is called Athinios and is actually the main port of the island. Cruises to nearby islands, the volcano of Santorini and the small island of Thirassia depart from the port in Fira. Athinios abstains 12 km from Fira and serves all the major ferry companies that come from Athens (Piraeus port) or Crete. At Athinios port you will find two mini markets.
