Donkeys have played a very important role in Greece’s past and especially in insular Greece, such as in Santorini. Santorini has numerous inaccessible paths, countless stairs, to which a donkey will happily take you for a charming and somewhat nostalgic ride.
Donkeys have been a reliable partner for transporting goods , as well as, the main means of personal transportation around the island for centuries. Live this experience and opt for a donkey ride departing from old port up to Fira town or oposite.
Donkeys and mules in Santorini are part of the native charm of the island.
During the summer, the main business of the day is carrying the tourists up and down the endless steep steps which connect Fira town down to the small port of Ormos. Riding a donkey can be really an amusing experience that you will never forget. Hold on tight and enjoy that wonderful experience!!
