If you don't want to pay too much money to the taxis this is the cheapest alternative. I advise to check the schedule in the main bus station in Fira especialy in winter months. Do not eat or drink on the bus, the guys are...More
Have honestly never been spoken to like I was yesterday on the bus. I got on with an empty can of coke and the driver went absolutely mad, shouted at me and insisted I took it to the bin across the road treating me like...More

We wanted a day out in Fira, while we stayed in Kamri and our hotel suggested the cheap bus service. Taxis are pricey and Thompson guide wanted to charge us €25 for the trip/transfer! We also considered hiring a car but as the island is...More

there's a cruise port that drops people at bottom of steps in fira, get cable car or donkeys up steps to fira. if it's one further down then only 15-20min. small island doesn't take long to get anywhere
