Is very bad experience, if any one want to visit the Volcano do it only if you have time to spend. Is not so 'wow' like you think. Looks like more line a small island than a Volcano. The best way to visited is with...More

Unless we visit we can't imagine of its beauty. Island made of volcano. Wonderful place for family holidays

2 days maximum visit. Nice island but not highly recommend. Come with small hand bag or suitcase.Lots of steps everywhere.

Visiting Santorini is great experience, but only for a day, I wouldn’t recommend a long stay holiday, even though it’s a pretty island but it’s not place for young kids

It's alright but there isn't anything special about it, beyond knowing your on a volcano you wouldn't really know otherwise. Personally I wouldn't recommend doing it

WOW! Quick tip: stay for at least a day (3 the best) in Oia. Oh and take a good camera :-) Small but absolutely beautiful village. Good food, markets and friendly people. Very expensive near the top ;-)

We took the boat at 2pm from the old port and it was a good time to go even though it was definitely hot!! There was a nice breeze which was quite helpful on the hike up. Be sure to wear good shoes for the...More

A lovely walk and well worth a visit. Not quite the picture perfect pointed volcano with a crater (Santorini is the Crater!) but the desolate barren hillock in the centre of the crater, still warm with the magma below the surface is a brilliant visit....More

I made the mistake of reading TripAdvisor the morning of the excursion and almost talked myself out of it ... so glad I didn’t! I love Fira and enjoyed the excuse to head to Old Port which is just beautiful like the rest of the...More

No- it is not. There are lots of steps with no access for disables. You might have to rent a car- however, their bus service is pretty good and cheap.

I agree with kcarters. It's not an easy climb at times and the footing is always unstable, so I'd advise that you leave it for another visit. The view is amazing but not worth the danger for you
