One of the most beautiful Islands in Greece, Santorini has been attracting tourists for centuries and there is a wide variety of things to be seen. Hire a car on Santorini to explore the cliff top villages or drop down to the attractive beaches of the coast.  By taking advantage of your rental car you will discover all that the island has to offer from gorgeous Oia, to the capital Fira.

Here's what you need to know about driving on Santorini:

Scenic Drive and Roads:

Santorini has a good road network that connects the island's main towns and attractions. The primary road that encircles the island is the Santorini Ring Road, also known as the "Fira-Oia Road."

The Fira-Oia Road offers breathtaking views of the Caldera, the iconic blue-domed churches, and the Aegean Sea. It connects the towns of Fira (the capital), Imerovigli, Oia, and other villages.

Many roads in Santorini can be narrow and winding, particularly in the older parts of towns and villages. Some roads are one-way, so be prepared for occasional traffic delays.

Traffic and Parking:

Santorini can become quite busy, especially during the peak tourist season (summer). Traffic congestion is more common in Fira and Oia.

Parking can be challenging in the main towns, so it's advisable to use public parking areas or designated parking lots when exploring these areas. Some accommodations provide parking, so it's a good idea to check in advance.

In Oia, one of the most popular destinations on the island, the village's iconic sunset views can attract a large number of visitors. Plan to arrive early to find parking and secure a good spot to watch the sunset.


Drive cautiously and be mindful of pedestrians, particularly in busy areas and around popular attractions. The island's roads can be hilly, and some areas have steep cliffs. Exercise caution when driving on these roads, especially if you're not familiar with the terrain.

Whether you're visiting for a romantic getaway or a family vacation, driving on Santorini allows you to experience the magic of this beautiful Greek island.

Useful to know about Santorini

  • It’s also famous for dramatic sunsets, the stunning cliff top village of Oia and strangely, for a white aubergine, native to the island
  • The proper name of the island is Thira but the more common name, Santorini comes from Saint Irene, after whom the cathedral in Perissa is dedicated
