If there's one significant difference you'll immediately notice, it's driving on the right side of the road, a departure from the UK convention. The roads are generally safe and well-maintained, but you'll need to be cautious of narrow mountain passes and the occasional goat crossing!

Speed Limit and Traffic Rules

The speed limits are typically 50 km/h in built-up areas and 90 km/h on open roads, but specific signs will guide you. Wearing seat belts is mandatory, and mobile phone usage while driving is prohibited. And don't forget, the drinking and driving limit is 0.05% BAC, lower than the 0.08% BAC limit in the UK.

Car Choices and Parking

A compact car would be perfect for manoeuvring the small streets of Agios Nikolaos. Parking can be a challenge during peak summer months, but there are paid parking spots, and with a bit of luck, you might clinch a free parking space.

Attractions and Routes

A trip to the magical Mirabello Bay or the historic Spinalonga Island is a must. Don't miss the quaint traditional villages of Elounda and Plaka, mere minutes away by car.

Getting Around

Most locals speak some English, so don't hesitate to ask for directions. Be aware that street signs are in Greek and phonetic English. Agios Nikolaos is an hour and a half drive from Heraklion Airport, making it a breeze to get to your holiday destination.

Money and Costs

The currency here is the Euro. Right now, the Euro is slightly stronger than the Pound Sterling, so anticipate your Pound stretching a little less than at home. Card payments are widely accepted at most places.

Climate and Seasonal Events

Experience mild winters and warm, dry summers in Agios Nikolaos. Time your visit to coincide with the famous 'Lato' Cultural Festival in July and August, with its Puppet Theatre, music concerts and art exhibitions.

Travel smart, explore freely and make the most of your Agios Nikolaos adventure - it's time to hit the road!
