Important Safety Notice! When you exit the Villa for heading towards the Airport and other island destinations, you come to the same T intersection with the blue «ΠΟΡΑΣ» sign and our MONOLOITHOS VILLA blue sign, but this time from the opposite direction! There is a STOP sign there but visibility is very poor. Make sure that you stop completely and check for traffic from the LEFT and then from the RIGHT! The dangerous intersection looks like this [note the Airport fencing]:
Other Important Driving Tips: Note though that during the summer months the island is crowded and the narrow streets are congested. Parking in main town areas is difficult. In addition, many tourist drivers, often are absent minded, or have lost their way [hence either stopping suddenly or turning without proper signaling]. Be extra cautious if you rent a motorbike. Also be extra careful of other bikers! Many bike rentals are driven by persons with little or no experience, driving in unfamiliar and often dangerous roads!
Be cool, stay concentrated and don’t mix drinking & driving.
Enjoy your stay in Santorini safely!
