Cheap Flights to Thira

Thira or Thera is the largest island of Santorini. Be sure to explore the areas outside of the towns. There is beautiful countryside where tradition still survives. Cave houses (both abandoned and occupied), gardens, vinyards, small family business, and tiny churches are there to be discovered. Thira ranks among top travel destinations for wedding celebrations for at least 4 years -- primarily for sunset and peace, like those in Oia. While Thira is full of medium and top-cost hotels and villas, there are still lots of abandoned caves and modest private houses where noone seems to live for a long time -- even in western Oia where every inch seems to be occupied by some villa. Cars can be rented. An international driving permit is recommended. Without one, many car rental places will rent cars, but travel guides have mentioned tourists having insurance problems in case of accident. A popular method of getting around is to rent ATVs, though the "all-terrain" part is a misnomer, as most ATV riders are tourists riding on the paved road.

Check out flights, trip tickets, air line specials, low prices on air travel fares and more at AirGorilla.com (end of ad). ATVs share the road with other drivers and are usually all over the island. The island is small enough to travel around on an ATV, and is a cost-effective way to self-explore the further reaches of Thira. If you prefer sea, most popular and recommended transport are high-speed catamarans, like Hellenic Seaways Highspeed (bright-red Vodaphone-logo boats). The Pireaus to Thira trip takes only 4.5hrs, comparable in duration to air, and more stress-free. Ferries dock at the port of Athinios, where buses and taxis meet each arrival to transport passengers to Oia, Fira, and elsewhere. All vehicles climb up a very steep, winding road (it makes seven 180 degree turns) to get anywhere from Athinios. If you travel by cruise ship, the experience will surely leave you with lasting memories. Cruise ships that reach the island of Thira do not anchor at Athinios port, but one or two miles away from the old port of the island. Thira is one of the great natural wonders of the world, and its main attraction is the landscape and seascape of the island itself. The configuration of the present, roughly semicircular island is the result of an enormous volcanic explosion which occurred probably around 1630 bce, literally blowing the top off the island and changing what had been a typical half-submerged mountain of an Aegean island into a flooded crescent caldera, in the middle of which a few small smoking islands still bear witness to volcanic activity. Some have speculated that this event was the inspiration for the myth of Atlantis. A viewpoint behind Iris hotel on Thira (close to center of the island): great for taking sunset photos with a sea and palm trees.
