Packing for Greece ??

These are some frequent questions come across your mind !!

Useful TIPS for GREECE

 

  • When to visit Greece ?

I recommend to visit Greece in April, September and October. Weather are milder with less crowded of tourist.

May-August are very Hot and crowded more (if you are looking for a sun then this is the perfect time)

 

  • How to travel Greece on a budget ?

Travelling in April, September and October can give you a straight chance to have 20% off on most the tourism service like ferry, flights and accommodation.

Pre-book your tour about 6 month in advance, to pay the least amount. Always buy Combo of sight-seeing.

  • What language does Greece Speak ? Are People friendly in tourism ?

They understand and speak English. Local people are very friendly and ready to help you every time.

  • How expensive is Greece?

Greece is less expensive as compare to the rest of the European countries like Rome, Paris and Amsterdam. Planning holidays in Greece significantly cheaper than the rest of the Europe.

  • Is Athens Greece near Beach?

Athens is a Capital of Greece. It has a very unique historic background. Beaches are hardly half hour away from the city which is plus point staying in Athens.

  • Where to stay in Athens Greece?

I recommend to stay in City Centre(Acropolis) as most the tourist place are by walk and into the city. You can always try to find a suitable hotel with a view of Acropolis which will make your holidays more memorable.

  • How much local transport cost in Greece ?

Taxis are very cheap to afford for local transport. All main city have huge connected transportation system.  It is a combination of City buses, trolley-buses Athens Metro, Tram, and  Suburban railway all in one. Buy 5 days all mode ticket for the cheaper option to avail.

  • Greece which island to choose ? Which is the best island ?

There are 19 best island in Greece, depend on how much time you have to explore. 3 Greek island (Aegina, Pores, and Hydra) are very near to Athens where you can day trip. The Best island is Santorini known for white villa and exotic beaches.

  • Greece travel with infant/toddler ?

I travelled Greece (Athens) with a toddler. Greece is not at all Baby/Toddler friendly place. Due to the low population of babies, there is no infrastructure for small kids. Hardly found baby changing area in the public place. Streets are not buggy/pram friendly. All the sight-seeing not accessible for buggy/Prams. Loose chips, slops and lots of stairs which is not an ideal situation for toddlers.

Still you booked your holidays like me, bring carrier bag for baby/toddlers with you. Take Strong wheel buggy/ prams. Hats and umbrella to protect from sun.  And Get ready to hold them tight with you to have a fun.

These tips are the same ones I would use for those travelling to Italy :) It seemd like Italy was a little more toddler friendly though. Did restaurants have highchairs or booster seats?
