As a meeting participant, you are responsible for all of your own travel arrangements, including booking a hotel of your choice. The brief information below will help you get started. For detailed suggestions, please see:
Fly to Athens, the capital of Greece, first. Then take a 45-minute flight from Athens to Santorini, or go by ferry. Some European cities offer direct flights to Santorini.
Airport code: JTR (Thira is Santorini’s official name)
If you are not flying from Athens to Santorini, take a fast ferry (5-hours, more expensive) or a slow ferry (8-hour, more frugal). Review details at Let’s Ferry.
From the airport to Firá, it’s a 15-minute taxi or bus ride. Check to see if your hotel offers shuttle service.
Santorini is very unusual, with lots of tiny hotels, from inexpensive “rooms for hire” to luxury boutique hotels. There are no big chains and no large hotels of any kind. Check Booking.com for the most options.
