As a person who has done many legendary routes (Transfagarasan, Transalpina, Stelvio etc.) I am telling you "Do not die before you ride this route."
But be cautious, the elevatiton goes up to 1.800 meters, best between mid-may until mid-september.
Spectacular curves, transfagarasan style road views, so far away from residental presence.
Recommended that you take the road from Ioannina (west of Pindus mountains) and ride from west to east.
