Breathtaking views on this quick ride to and from Thira. The line was long when we arrived in Thira to take the cable car down to Port, but it did not take long and was worth it. It felt very safe and even the ones...More

We walked down to the port and took the cable car back up. It is a long walk down and the steps are very slippery and covered in donkey poo. The stinky, wet poop is actually preferable to the dried stuff that blows in your...More

For 6 euro each adult ticket had some time as we had a kid along and wasn't worth taking the donkeys. Perfect time to reach the Old port before sunset and back.

I'm afraid of heights so this is scary for me but I just closed my eyes until we got to the top. It is a quick ride, just 2 minutes.
