Scooter rentals

We are a couple and most probably will be staying in a hotel in this area. Would scooter rentals be recommended in terms of driving around and safety? Is there proper scooters to navigate the uphill terrains for 2? Wont be too keen on going around in circles and getting lost so was wondering if its a feasible way to move around. Any tips on the driving culture here or regulations?

Where are we allowed to park?

Good scooters are available everywhere on the island. You can park just about anywhere as long as you aren't blocking traffic and there is no 'No Parking' sign nearby. Just look for other scooters and cars parked nearby.

This map is the best one I know of for finding your way around the island. Roads are narrow in places so be careful: http://www.santorini-web.com/map.pdf

You will need to provide an International Driving Permit to be driving legally in Greece.

If you like to rent scooter of 50cc then you don't need an international driving license. But since you are two, I will definitely recommend you to rent one from 125cc or bigger as it will be more comfortable with the up hills. But then you will need to have international driving license.
