Ia is a picturesque town beloved by artists and the tourists alike. Being a destination for all those cruise ship passengers the town so is very busy in the afternoons. It is far better to arrive in the early evening, allowing plenty of time to meander, shop and take photographs, then have a relaxing meal in a Caldera restaurant while watching one of the most beautiful sunsets.
Easily reachable by bus from the central bus station in Thira. The road to Ia is not for the faint hearted! The driver seems to derive great pleasure from scaring the living daylights out of his passengers and a word of warning about the conductor... always have the correct fare or be prepared to face his wrath!
Taxi from port in Thira costs around €20 per group; €25 if you don't want driver to seat people from other groups.
Most part of the village is reachable by-foot only. Even garbage is taken away by donkeys.
