Going on donkey for Santorini
No, this is not a joke, it's about oldest business that exists on the island. For download or upload from Fira to the port, there is a road with 580 steps, and the locals have set up the transport business with the donkeys, for a small fee of 5 €.
Actually the donkeys are still used as means of transport or cargo. The distance from the ports of Oia o Fira even their urban centers are covered on the backs of these animals. It is not because it is very far, but because it is very steep and full of steps.
That's right, os We strongly recommend that you walk down from Fira to the port, since the views along the entire road are spectacular.
