"How many times have you heard..." Greece Warnings Or Dangers Tip by teflon1961

Greece Warnings and Dangers: 126 reviews and 90 photos


How many times have you heard about the driving!?

We hired a car and it was the best move we made, though I did nearly manage to kill us both to death on the 4th day!

Beware on the roads as whitelines are barely non-existant, couple this with a major junction and confusing traffic lights, 4 billion mopeds and local drivers who DO know what they're doing and it's a bit of a recipe for disaster.

My tip:-

If you want to see the island of Corfu...Hire a car...If you want to stay alive till the flight back.... don't drive it !!!!

Windy roads on the hills can be frightening to...I'm sure you can see better if you click on this piccie that the Corfu Road Planners did their training at the Blackpool University for Ghost Train design ;-)

(By the way, I exagerated about those mopeds.. there were only 3.9 billion.. ;-)
