[ Aug.2013 ] The towns of Santorini are situated on the cliff which is about 300m high.
To take a tourist boat, you have to go down.The hotel stuff told us that it would take at least 20 minutes, so we thought half an hour would be enough. But the slope went on and on.
And the surface was slippery, I could not run down.
On top of that, there were so many donkeys around, so I had to be careful not to bump into them.Finally it took about one hour and we nearly missed the boat.
Because I hurried, I was out of my breath and felt dizzy, I had to spend some time in a cabin for the sailors with the electric fan.
I recommend to take either the cable-car or the donkey.
