If you decide to go to Patra its easier to plan a better ride through greece and through some of the best mountain ranges. away from highways and through beautifull landscapes.
but it will cost more time to travel there.

the same goes for igoumenitsa you aproach from the west and move through mountains that are covered in forests lakes and streams many villages and cheap prices in summer time as people here tend to preffer sea over mountain in summer.

Hmmm, very tempting, will have to think about Greece more.

Thanks for the suggestion.

You are welcome. just to let you know i'll be having people coming from italy in 2019 for a visit  the also came in 2017 and we toured in north and west parts of Greece.

This year i was visiting them with the wife in April and so its our turn now :)

We could arrange a similar thing if you are up to it.

Some things that are interesting for northern mentalities..

1. No police
 which means

  no traffic tickets
  no cameras

2. Average to good road conditions to the majority of  main and secondary roads ok you have to keep in mind inside citys the road is like marble.... especially wet

3. Prices are lower than rest of europe (eg North Italy ) not lower than the balkans though.
