The funicular in Fira on Santorini is an alternative way to get to the old port – the other way is to go on foot (or on a donkey) up and down the long and steep stairs (the elevation here is over 200 m). Passengers of large cruise ships are frequent users of the railway.
Armeni is a port below Oia, on the Caldera side. In the glory days of Oia, Armeni was her main port. Large ships moored at some distance from the shore, and sailors reached it by small boats, so-called “Lantzes” (as it is currently the case with large cruise ships in the old port of Fira.)
Discover it’s magical, unique beauty, it’s fascinating history and all of its attractions that draw millions of tourists every year from all around the world.
