Fabulous place to arrive via boat. The prettiest place, in my opinion, I have ever had the pleasure of docking (even compared to Caribbean). Worth taking the cable car up - despite it being a scenic walk the donkeys are a hazard. We walked back down, wanting to take in the beautiful view & escape the cable car queue, however it was treacherous & we saw numerous people slip... pity they have the donkeys, if at all , using the same path u & down?
Despite the donkeys & the crowds Santorini was a brilliant port of call & lived up expectations. We caught a local bus across to Oia (1 euro each way) - well worth the visit - even nicer that Thira. The boat did not depart until 8.30pm - a bonus as it was lovey to see Santori at dusk.
