The most popular ferry routes to Santorini are from Mykonos to Santorini, from Piraeus (Athens) to Santorini, from Heraklion (Crete) to Santorini, from Naxos to Santorini, from Paros to Santorini, from Ios to Santorini, and from Milos to Santorini.

Santorini island is the most popular island in Greece, so there are frequent daily ferry connections between Piraeus port (the biggest port in Athens) and Santorini (or Thira).
