Absolutely no problem getting down to Agni (or up again). It is not as steep as the road up to our house! It is a bit twisty, but no worse than anywhere else and certainly a lot easier than Kaminaki. I go to Agni quite a lot and would prefer to drive there than say, down to Pelekas or Glyfada as although the road is small. there is little traffic and if you do meet someone they will probably also be driving with great caution.
I agree with you Lavina, we have been to Agni in both car and Quad but we prefer quad as its easier to squeeze into a small parking space as we have always found it quite busy. We drive from Doukades so its about 35 minutes but a great day out. Havent attempted the quad to Glifada to many baclavas to pull back up the hill lol...
I understand that certain governments are considering legislation to ensure that quad bikes have roll over bars. This is because people have been crushed to death when the bike has rolled over due to unstable conditions (excess weight etc). The dead include tourists, sheep farmers etc. Do not wish to spoil your fun, but caveat quadum

I hate to dampen your enthusiasm but in August with the intense heat and the busy roads, even on a Sunday morning and remember you have to go back the same route later in the day I would suggest that you make the journey in a car.
Sunday is the busiest day in Agni and you need to book in advance for lunch, but arrive early and leave late and you will have a wonderful day, bring your swimmies and enjoy the use of the sunbeds before and after you eat.

Thanks for all the replies forumsters - I lot to consider before we head off but I will let you all know how we get on and thanks for the heads up Angela about Sunday being the busy day - may have to re-schedule for a day in the week but we will see how it goes.
The road down to/up from Agni really isn't that bad and certainly no different from many others on the island - although I must confess the hairpin towards the bottom made me sweat a bit when I took my BMW motorbike down there. But then it did weigh 380 kilos
