Why rent a car?

Santorini is one of those islands where a vehicle (car, motorcycle, ATV) is strongly recommended and will enable a smooth exploration of the area at your own pace. Santorini is the top tourist destination in Greece, boasting numerous villages and beaches; thus, a car is the best way to enjoy a carefree holiday on this phenomenal island.

The public bus transportation system (KTEL buses) connects the capital of Fira with other villages and the port. Although it is a considerably cheap way of transportation, it is definitely not the best way to move around. The greatest disadvantage of public buses during summer months is that they get overcrowded and timetables can be unreliable.
Furthermore, note that the KTEL buses only connect the capital town (Fira) with the other villages. As a result, there is no direct route from one village or a beach to another, so transits at Fira central bus station are unavoidable. This might be time-consuming and confusing. Also, buses only operate until 22:30.

Taxis, on the other hand, are another option for transportation. Again, due to the large number of tourists during summer, they get booked or hired immediately, so it is recommended not to count on a taxi in order to visit several places during your holiday. In any case, you can book your private transfer with us.

Note that Santorini has a moderate size and distances do not exceed 30-40’ by car. It is an island with many fascinating areas to discover. Apart from the main touristy caldera villages of Oia, Imerovigli, Fira, and Firostefani, driving with your car to a volcanic beach, a remote winery, an authentic tavern in the mainland, or a village out of the beaten path will enrich your visit and insight on the island.

Therefore, having your own rental car in Santorini is an ideal, time-saving investment.

Driving conditions

Driving in Santorini is not considered very challenging compared to other islands. The island has a safe road to its most extent, with a network connecting every village and beach. Also note that due to its volcanic origin and the steep cliffs of the caldera, there are a few zig-zag parts (namely the road from Athinios Port to the central road, and a small part from Fira to Oia) where you will need to be very careful.
You might notice a lack of road signs, but due to the island's average size, you can not get lost easily. Using GPS is always helpful. Furthermore, take into consideration that during the night there is hardly any street lighting.
Last but not least, while driving, you will pass by many wonderful viewpoints, so have your cameras ready!

Available gas stations

Upon receiving your vehicle, make sure to check the fuel tank and verify whether it uses Diesel or Unleaded. When you return the car, you will be asked to deliver it with a full fuel tank. There are more than 15 gas stations around the island (i.e. Shell, Avin, Eko, Aegean, and others). Many of them are located around Fira, but there are plenty in other places as well.

Parking

Parking in Santorini is very convenient. Cars are not allowed inside the villages, so almost every village (such as Oia, Imerovigli, Firostefani, and Fira) has one or more designated free-of-charge parking areas right before the settlement. Parking spots are indicated with a blue street featuring a “P” letter in a square. Note that most hotels in the caldera villages do not possess a parking lot. Moreover, parking on the street is frequently permitted unless there is a no-parking sign. Make sure that you don't block traffic, though - especially the bus street routes.

What to do & see with a car?

Apart from the main tourist villages of Oia, Fira, and Imerovigli, Santorini has many amazing places, beaches, and villages to discover by car. Three routes that combine different attractions and places to visit are listed below.

Minoan Site of Akrotiri - Red beach - Lighthouse

A 15 km drive from Fira will lead you to the Minoan Site of Akrotiri, one of the most significant archaeological sites in the Cyclades. The site of Akrotiri is a Bronze Age settlement considered by archeologists one of the most sophisticated of ancient times. It prospered for centuries before getting buried under volcanic ash. Less than 4 km from there, one can locate the stunning Red Beach - a spectacular spot to dive into clear waters while admiring the vibrant colors of the volcanic soil that blend with the azure waters of the Aegean sea. The tour excursion to the south part would be incomplete without a visit to the Lighthouse at the very edge of the island. For the romantic souls, that comprises a perfect sunset spot away from the bustling caldera.

Emporio - Perissa beach

Emporio is a traditional village on the mainland of Santorini. It is located a little less than 10km by car from the capital of Fira. The settlement has beautifully paved alleys for strolling around and admiring the local architecture. Churches, domes, towers, and ruins of a Venetian castle are some of the attractions of the intriguing village. Furthermore, at just a 3 km ride away, lies one of the most popular Santorinian beaches. Perissa is a long sandy beach with many restaurants, cafes, and facilities where you can spend an unforgettable day.

Pyrgos village - the wine roads - Profitis Ilias monastery - Metaxy mas tavern

Pyrgos village is considered a hidden gem. Only 7.5 km south of Fira, you are able to immerse yourselves in a place of authentic Santorinian color and lifestyle. Make sure to take your time and wander inside this picturesque village. After that, take your car and explore the broader region, famous for producing the Assyrtiko wine. The landscape is wonderful, with vineyards scattered all over the place, creating the famed Santorinian wine roads. There are numerous wineries and estates that welcome visitors for a guided wine tour. Lastly, we suggest continuing your way up to Profitis Ilias Monastery, where you can enjoy a panoramic view. At dinner time, book a table at the “Metaxy mas” tavern, one of the most unpretentious Greek taverns, serving local recipes to die for!
