Highlights of this tour
Your accessible tour of Santorini starts when your guide and your driver pick you up from the cruise terminal or your accommodation in a wheelchair accessible vehicle. During this tour, you see the best of what the island of Santorini has to offer. You visit the capital of the island, Fira, where you find the Blue Domed Church. Besides that, you visit the town of Oia and the town of Amoudi, where you experience good food, lovely beaches, peace, and quiet. At the end of your accessible tour, your driver drops you off at your accommodation or the cruise port.
The island of Santorini is mostly accessible. The cruise port, however, has some difficulties. It is important that you check with your cruise liner whether you can come ashore or not. In some cases, tender boats bring people to land. Most of the time, these tender boats are not wheelchair accessible. This is something your cruise liner takes care of, so verify this with them. If you can go ashore, you take a lift to the city. This lift is spacious and transfers all types of wheelchairs.
The city of Fira is the capital of the island of Santorini. In this city, you find many churches, but the most wonderful one is the Blue Domed Church. Among all the white walls in the town of Fira, this blue dome grab your attention. Across the Island you find several blue-domed churches, but the St. Gerasimos Christian Church is the most famous one due to the beautiful surroundings. Besides that, you go to the Cliffs of Firostefani. From these Cliffs, you see the city of Fira and the 300-meter-high walls of the caldera, the volcanic formation that makes up the island.
Oia is the most photogenic village on the island of Santorini. The fairytale town has a long pedestrian street on top of the crater wall with shops, restaurants, cafes, and trendy boutique hotels. This street continues into the village of Finikia. The view is beautiful everywhere, and it pays to go down the narrow streets along the caldera. You find a true maze with stone steps and a new surprise around every corner. Keep your camera close at hand, because here you can easily find the most beautiful photos of the colorful village of Oia.
The village of Amoudi, on the east coast near Alykanas, is relatively unknown. If you like peace and the beach, this is the place for you. You find several delicious restaurants that are worth a visit. It is also one of the movie locations of “the sisterhood of the traveling pants.” Remember this town when visiting the island of Santorini.
