Greece - moving around the country
If you want to control your journey by yourself, you can rent a car or a motorcycle. Roads in major cities are quite nice, but in the suburbs, the prime coat predominates. With a rented car, you can also travel by ferry. The cost of paying for such a transportation is extremely high; it’s at least 80 euros. Carrying a motorcycle will cost as much as a passenger ticket. It is also possible to rent a bicycle. However, not everyone will be able to move around a city, as the relief of Greece is very hilly. Moreover, there are no dedicated bike lanes. Although, car drivers are quite respectful of the two-wheeled members of the road traffic.
