How is driving in the Peloponnese?

Jump to last reply

We are going in the first week of October and finalizing our itinerary. We have 15 days in Greece and considering renting a car in Napflio where we will base ourselves for 4 nights.
Our planned destinations from Napflio are Edipavros, Mycenae, Nemea and Olympia. We also plan to visit Delphi ( Meteora too if we have time ) but will probably day trip there from Athens. We plan to take the bus from Athens to Napflio but we are also open to the idea of renting from and returning the car in Athens.

Is driving in the Peloponnese not too challenging in terms of navigating and dealing with aggressive drivers or unmarked roads and highways and Greek alphabet with no Roman alphabet translations? the scenery along the way to the places we plan to visit, are they interesting for car drivers? We have driven in Germany, Croatia, Provence, Tuscany and enjoyed the sightseeing along the way, with no untoward incident.

Any advice and tips for the Geeece experts on here is much appreciated. Thanks.
