Santorini: best way to get from airport to Imerovigli hotel.

What is the best way to get from Santorini airport to Imerovigli hotel? I know you can take a taxi, but is there a less expensive option like a shuttle?

In my opinion the "best" way is a van/ shuttle arranged by the hotel, but it may be the most expensive option. Well "worth it", IMO.

If your hotel is directly accessible then a taxi would be best, or a private transfer arranged by your hotel. Sometimes that private transfer is really a taxi which has been booked to pick you up. If walking is necessary you can save money bo booking a shared shuttle with "HOPPA" and have the driver call ahead to your hotel to find out where to drop you off, and so someone from the hotel can meet you and bring you there. Be sure to have the hotel's contact phone number.

Get the hotel to arrange a driver. Imerovigli is a maze. Just finding your hotel is a challenge, let alone hauling luggage there. Our hotel was on 5 - 6 different levels with reception somewhat in the middle.

P.S. The view is stunning!

If you are solo, then a shuttle can save you a bit over a taxi, but if there are 2 or more of you, no, because the fee is per-person.

I think it would be best to make an arrangement with the hotel. The taxis in Santorini are expensive. No meter, so you have to be prepared to what the driver will charge you. We paid between 15 euro to 25 euro from our hotel to Ammoundi. FYI, Dimitri’s was the best in Ammoundi.

Are you still heading to Paris? Have a great time!

We had our hotel arrange transportation from the airport. We loved Imerovigli! We arranged a walking tour one day and otherwise took the bus to get around.

Thanks. My niece wanted to go to Santorini before she goes back to college in August. Her father says NO! however. Oh, well. I tried.
