The cable car, built upon funding by ship owner E. Nomikos in 1979, solved the problem of tourist transportation from the port to Fira. It can carry up to 1,200 passengers per day. The trip to Fira, built at an altitude of 220 m. from sea level, lasts only 3′. Tel.:+30 22860 22977.

If you do not wish to take the cable car up to Fira, you will have to do it the traditional way: walk, or ride the donkeys and mules on the so called Gialos road. The view from the cobblestone path, which has around 600 steps, is incredible.
