We arrived at Santorini on a Holland America cruise. While on the ship the view up the mountain was spectacular, but the view from the tram looking back at the ship sitting in the ocean was amazing!!! It's too bad that my husband didn't get to see this view, as he is afraid of heights, so unfortunately, he didn't get... More

Beautiful views, and best way to avoid the 800 step climb from the old port. We walked down the winding pathway from Fira centre through what can only be described as a donkey nightmare.At one stage we were encircled by three runaway donkeys followed in close pursuit by numerous others struggling under the weight of the less mobile cruise ship...

It's so easy to take tram to go up rather to walk or take the other way with the donkeys. Beautiful views from up here and faster.

We had taken a bus up to the top; but took the tram down. Great views all around. Fun just to sit and watch. Long line to get in, and the station isn't the cleanest place there, but definitely take the trip.

On our visit, we used tram to save time. It is comfortable and quick to go up on the hills. It is more convenient if you are visiting during summer time!

Its the best and fast way to Fira Square Santorini.Don't try the donkeys as you will pay trhe same price as the tram and the road is dangerous.

If you're fit, use the stairs. Do not use the donkeys, they are mistreated and no one should be encouraging the abuse. The tram is an ok alternative, but it's expensive for such a short ride. And if you show up at the same time as cruise ships, GOOD LUCK! I rode it down after sunset to see the old... More

Go with the cable car to save time. It is the same price as the donkeys. Do not use it if you are afraid of heights (or close your eyes!!!)

We decided to wander down to the Port from Fira at the top, to kill time on our last day. Having survived a three hour hike to Oia earlier in the week we thought a gentle walk down then back up would be straightforward enough. So be warned here of two main reasons why you should take the Tram/Cable car.... More

I'm absolutely terrified of heights, but with the promise of good shopping from my husband I took the Santorini tram up and down. It wasn't really that bad! Smooth very short ride. There was 4 of us in the tram carriage going up and 6 of us going down. The tram accommodated all of us comfortably both times. The price... More
