When to visit Greece?

With stunning landscapes and beautiful beaches, it’s no wonder that Greece and the Greek Islands are a popular holiday destination, especially during the peak summer season.

It’s one of those traditional places where you can just imagine you’re always going to have a great time. Soak up some sun. Spend some time on the beach. Do a bit of exploring. Greece is one of those places that really seems to have it all.

While this kind of typical summer vacation can seem a bit generic, Greece is far more than this in every single sense. Depending on the type of holiday you’re looking for and what you plan to do, there may even be better times to visit.

Here’s a guide to the best times to visit Greece to help you plan your perfect vacation!

If You’re Looking for The Best Weather

You can confidently visit Greece any time from May to mid-October. July and August are usually the hottest months, with temperatures getting very high, sometimes well above 40 degrees Celsius!

Be mindful of the strong winds coming from the north Aegean Sea, most often between mid-July to mid-September.

If You’re Looking for Beaches and Swimming

During the winter months, the water temperature can get quite cold. If you’re hoping to do some sunbathing, then any time from June to September will be great.

The water temperature increases during the summer months, being at its warmest during August and early September. If you want to avoid tourists, but still enjoy the beaches, aim for mid to late June or late September.

The Best Time to Visit for Sightseeing

During the peak season, Greece and the islands get very busy due to the influx of tourists. This, combined with high temperatures, can make sightseeing difficult.

“Instead, if sightseeing is your aim, schedule your visit either for April to mid-May or from October to mid-November. The milder weather will be ideal for walking and the price of accommodation is likely to be cheaper” says John York, a travel blogger at Academic Brits.

The Best Times for Island Adventures

During the off-peak season, some of the islands can come to a complete standstill. As such, if your aim is to island-hop during your trip to Greece, book your trip for between May to October, avoiding August if possible.

The islands of Mykonos and Santorini in particular can get very busy, so make sure that you book your accommodation at least 3 to 6 months in advance.

If You Want to Save Money

If you’re on a tight budget, try to visit Greece during the low season, between December to March. The downside of this can be that some of the tourist infrastructure, such as restaurants, may be closed.

Things such as food, drink, and transport prices tend to be the same throughout the year. However, hotel prices can significantly increase during the peak season.

A good alternative is to visit during the shoulder months (April, May, October, and November) when hotel prices are cheaper.

Looking for a Party?

The nightlife in Greece is a goldmine in itself; a haven if you will. You can listen to internationally acclaimed live DJs and dance the night’s away to your heart’s content.

The best nightlife and parties tend to be during July and August, with Mykonos, Santorini, Paros, and Ios being the preferred destination for many tourists.

However, you can also find great nightlife in Santorini from late May through to the start of October and the nightlife in Mykonos during late June or early September also tends to be good.

For Skiing

You may not immediately think of Greece for a skiing holiday, but Greece actually has a range of fantastic ski resorts.

The Greek ski season tends to begin in December and, depending on how much snow has fallen, can sometimes last through to May. January tends to be the best month for a Greek ski holiday.

Resorts, such as Mount Parnassus near Arachova, tend to be particularly popular as they are within a few hours of Athens and Delphi, making them ideal destinations for a day trip.

For Visiting Athens

Athens is great all year round, but the spring and autumn months provide the best of the warm weather with the tourist infrastructure.

Visiting Athens in August can also be a good idea as most people tend to head to the coast, leaving Athens less busy.

Vacations to Greece Broken Down by Seasons

Greece’s climate and vacation seasons can be broken down into three main groups. There’s high season, ‘shoulder season’ in the middle, and then what is known as the low season.

The High season is the peak season for tourism. This season spans the months of around mid-June to mid-September and is when you’ll find the hottest temperatures, the most tourists, and the highest prices.

However, these are all good things, believe it or not. The high season is when everything is in full swing, all the attractions are open, and all the resorts are yours to enjoy to their full potential.

The shoulder season falls either side of the high season, between the months of April to Mid-June, and then Mid-September through to October.

Many will claim this is by far the best time to visit Greece because the temperatures are cooler, the prices are cheaper, and there are fewer people around, but everywhere is still beautiful, open, and accessible!

Finally, the low season. The low season spans the months of November through to March and is classed as the winter months, although winter in most parts of Greece is still pretty mild compared to the country’s European counterparts.

It may rain and be a bit dark most days, maybe even snow during the colder months, but everything is cheap and affordable, and quiet, so it may be worth checking out if this is what you’re into.

Conclusion

Greece is a fantastic destination to visit all year round. However, if you can, avoid visiting during August, when Greece and the islands tend to be at their busiest with tourists, high temperatures, and more expensive accommodation.

If possible, aim for the shoulder months, where you can still enjoy the best of the weather and all that Greece has to offer, alongside cheaper hotels.

10 Great Movies That Were Filmed In Corfu Island

Last updated on November 4th, 2021 at 12:46 pm

What better way to film a movie is on Corfu Island in Greece. With the picturesque natural vistas of Corfu, many film producers have seen the potential in this beautiful island, making it somehow an important (and talked about) figure in high-profile and blockbuster movies.

Here are the 10 lucky movies that got to film on Corfu Island:

1. Fedora (1978)

Fedora-1978
Fedora-1978

Down on his luck, a Hollywood producer sees a chance to rise back to stardom. But first, he must lure a famous yet reclusive actress out of retirement, in order to revitalize his career.

Extensive location shooting took place around Corfu and Madouri, in conjunction with Bavaria Studios in Munich and the Billancourt Studios in Paris, director Billy Wilder does a fantastic job with this movie, and the relationship between Willian Holden and Marthe Keller is a joy to experience.

2. For Your Eyes Only (1981)

For Your Eyes Only-1981
For Your Eyes Only-1981

When agent James Bond, played by the legendary Roger Moore, is assigned to find a missing British vessel, he must do so quickly, since the vessel is equipped with a weapons encryption device. Should he fail, his enemy would possess this dangerous weapon.

Principal photography started on Corfu at the Villa Sylva at Kanoni (above Corfu Town), which acted as the movie’s Spanish villa. In addition, director John Glen opted to use the local slopes and olive trees for the chase scene between Melina’s Citroën 2CV and Gonzales’ men in Peugeot 504s, of which lasted for over twelve days.

3. The Burglars (Le Casse) (1971)

The Burglars(Le Casse)-1971
The Burglars(Le Casse)-1971

This film follows a group of professional burglars planning an emerald heist from a gem collector’s home. However, they’re being tracked by corrupt Greek police inspector Abel Zacharia, played by Omar Sharif, who was best known for his role as Sheriff Ali in Lawrence of Arabia.

A remake of the 1957 film with Jayne Mansfield, starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Dyan Cannon, and Robert Hossein as the Bulgars.

With a funny and unrealistic storyline and characters, this film is worthy of being shot in Corfu, along with special locations in Athens and Paris.

4. Hired To Kill (1990)

Hired To Kill-1990
Hired To Kill-1990

A group of mercenaries pose as a modeling group and fashion photographer, and travel to a South American island fortress to do a “fashion shoot.” Their main agenda is to free an imprisoned rebel leader.

This is a really fun watch and a unique storyline that I love, but filming the movie itself didn’t come without its struggles.

The filming took place mainly in Corfu, where it was reported that stuntman Clint C. Carpenter had died from a helicopter stunt gone wrong. Despite the tragedy, the film went on to display Corfu at its finest” says David Brooke, a lifestyle writer at UK Writings.

5. Pronto (1997)

Pronto-1997
Pronto-1997

Peter Falk is a Miami Beach bookie who finds himself in trouble with his mob bosses for unknown reasons. As a result, he decides to retire and relocate to Greece. But when he invites his girlfriend to join him, he suspects that his enemies would follow her to him.

This film was filmed in Corfu, which helped bring out the story’s beach scenes, along with the action scenes.

A super funny movie for its time, some may say this is one of the best Elmore Leonard adaptations there is!

6. The Executioner (1970)

The Executioner-1970
The Executioner-1970

A British Intelligence Agent, played by George Peppard, suspects that one of his colleagues is a double agent. But when his agency doesn’t believe him, he has no choice but to kill the double agent.

Besides London, Athens, and Istanbul, Corfu is the most notable place to film this movie’s action scenes.

7. The Girl From Corfu (1956)

The Girl From Corfu-1956
The Girl From Corfu-1956

I mean, the title says it all. Two young girls from Corfu go to live with their rich uncle in Athens. Their uncle, in return, transforms them into city girls to make them marriage-worthy.

This Greek production was filmed by a Greek studio with pretty much an all-Greek cast, with the unforgettable Rena Vlachopoulou as the main character, and has taken advantage of the sceneries in Corfu, where Rena was really born.

Highly rated, although it does feel super dated now.

8. Apollo Goes On Holiday (1968) – Or Operation Apollo in Greek

Apollo Goes On Holiday-1968
Apollo Goes On Holiday-1968

Prince Jan falls for a beautiful tour guide named Elena, and he poses as a humble visitor to join the tour group. But once the two fall in love, the prince must choose between his royal duties and her.

Elena Nathanael was a beauty and a remarkable actress who died on March 4, 2008, aged 61.

With a fantastic place like Corfu, it fits this story well, as the prince falls for the tour guide, and tries to keep his identity a secret. In other words, romance and wonder are best suited in Corfu.

9. The Greek Tycoon (1978)

The Greek Tycoon-1978
The Greek Tycoon-1978

The film follows the aging Greek Theo Tomasis(Aristotelis Onassis), a rags-to-riches man who according to the scenario longs to be elected President of Greece, although this does not correspond to reality. He also falls for Liz Cassidy, a beautiful woman mourning the loss of her husband, the assassinated President of the United States.

Anthony Quinn and Jacklin Bisset fit perfectly into the roles of Aristotle Onassis and Jackie Kennedy.

The film was shot in multiple locations, including Corfu.

10. My Family And Other Animals (2005)

My Family And Other Animals-2005
My Family And Other Animals-2005

This film follows the Durrell family – Lawrence Durrell, Leslie Durrell, Margaret Durrell, and Gerald Durrell, and their mother Louisa Durrell – as they spend three years on the Greek island of Corfu, in a series of villas. As the family indulges in their varying interests, each of their lives evolves into something that they might not have expected.

Filmed in Corfu – the main location of this film – My Family and Other Animals is told through the eyes of Gerald Durrell, who was aged 10-14 when these events had happened during his family’s stay in Corfu.

Conclusion

As you can see, it’s no wonder that Corfu is one of the best places to film a movie – blockbuster or no. In fact, Corfu, with its wondrous landscapes and settings, there are currently no plans for filming there to stop.
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show with one or all 10 of these films!

9 Greek Desserts & Dishes You Have To Taste

Last updated on November 4th, 2021 at 12:57 pm

One of the things that draw me back to Greece time and again, aside from the sunshine, culture, and friendly people, is the food.

The Greeks know how to eat, and the freshest ingredients are combined with an indulgent flare to create hearty, rustic dishes that you’ll be raving about.

Mezze, the Greek small-plate tradition, allows for plenty of experimentation, and of course, with 8500 miles of coastline, you’ll discover some fantastic seafood.

Here are eight of my favorite Greek dishes that you have to try.

1) Taramosalata

Taramosalata
Taramosalata

This mouth-watering dip is always a huge hit when it comes out to the table.

Greek dining experiences are built around sharing food, so it’s not unusual to see a table jam-packed with small plates – this is known as mezze – and everyone reaching over each other to get to their favorites!

The unique food culture of Greece is so wrapped up in community and family, and taramasalata evokes all these things for me.

Tarama is the Greek word for cured cod roe and this forms the base of the dip. Combined with quality Greek olive oil and flavored with lemon juice and garlic, the result is a creamy and moreish dip that’s perfect for spreading on bread or dipping sweet crispy carrots and other vegetables.

2) Dolmades

Dolmades
Dolmades

Dolmades are sometimes known to Western audiences as grape leaves or vine leaves, and these bite-size morsels come perfectly sized.

The Greeks don’t let any part of the grape plant go to waste, and as the grapes themselves are being turned into fine red wine, the vine leaves are parceling up a mixture of herby rice and other ingredients.

Always oily and always delicious, sometimes dolmades consist of nothing more than a bite of perfectly cooked rice filled with dill and lemon juice.

At other times you’ll find minced lamb, beef, and pork packaged up. Dolmades can be dipped in the yoghurty dip tzatziki, and as with many Greek favorites these are perfect for sharing.

3) Baklava

Baklava - Only a piece!
Baklava – Only a piece!

The reigning king of Greek desserts, baklava is a firm favorite across the region and its popularity extends into Romania to the north and Turkey to the east.

“This extravagant dessert is still a quintessentially Greek experience for me,” says Francis Montura, travel blogger at Gum Essays, “and I’ve finished many indulgent evenings with sticky fingers thanks to baklava.”

Folded layers of crispy phyllo pastry, filled with sticky syrup or honey, packed with nuts, and flavored with cinnamon, baklava is always an irresistible treat after a big Greek feed.

The whole table will be eager to get stuck in as its sweet cinnamon aroma fills the room.

4) Moussaka

A portion of Mousaka
A portion of Mousaka

Moussaka is a Greek dish that has made its way into kitchens around the world and it’s now a firm favorite outside of Greece.

Yet an authentic moussaka, served up steaming hot in a Greek taverna, is hard to beat for me.

This is rustic and hearty fare – food for hard-workers, and if you’ve got achy feet from exploring the Parthenon in the noon-day sun, sit back and enjoy a big dish of moussaka. You’ll have earned it.

Moussaka consists of layers of eggplant and minced lamb, combined with onions, garlic, tomato, and spices including cinnamon.

This layered dish is topped with a creamy bechamel sauce to create an Athenian take on the lasagne.

Don’t forget to ask for the recipe because this can be recreated at home to relive the flavors of Greece.

5) Saganaki

Saganaki
Saganaki

This classic Greek starter is a great excuse for a little indulgence.

Saganaki consists of fried cheese cooked into a crispy state, and the combination of a snappy outer layer and the gooey insides will always kickstart your appetite.

Saganaki is found all over Greece and it’s so popular it’s simply named after the small pan in which the cheese is fried. The pan and the dish have become inseparable.

Saganaki can be made with feta or halloumi, and sometimes you’ll find it cooked with shrimp, tomato, or topped with sliced cucumber.

This is a simple, versatile dish and there are many regional variations, but ultimately, it’s all about the cheese. A squeeze of fresh lemon on top gives it a tart kick. This will become your staple starter!

6) Loukoumades

Loukoumades
Loukoumades

Donuts may not be what springs to mind when you think of an athlete’s diet, but the history of loukoumades – crispy, rustic Greek donuts – tells a different story.

These sweet desserts are first documented as fuel for the Olympians almost 3000 years ago. But whether you’ve spent your day taming lions, javelin throwing, or simply sight-seeing, loukoumades are for you.

These are dough balls fried until they’re crisp and golden and usually flavored with cinnamon and sugar for a delectable treat.

You’ll spot these all over Athens from street food stalls, and you’re never likely to be too far from a loukoumades vendor.

7) Octopus

Grilled Octopus
Grilled Octopus

Octopus is popular all over the world, but the Greek’s emphasis on freshness makes it an unmissable experience for your time in Greece.

Fished from the Ionian and the Aegean, the Greeks pride themselves on sea-to-table service and most likely you’ll be eating octopus fished that morning by local fishermen.

Octopus is usually grilled, giving it a barbecue feel and the tough flesh becomes succulent and delicious as it’s licked by flames.

Seek out the classic fish taverns known as psarotavernes for a quintessential Greek octopus experience.

Another way to cook Octopus is the one used in Corfu, it is called Octopus Bourdeto.

Nothing to do with grilling, but is cooked with onions and lots of red pepper with potatoes. It’s a dish with a unique taste.

8) Fresh Fish

Mixed Seafood
Mixed Seafood

This one may not be a specific dish, but I would encourage you to take advantage of that and try the variations on the theme.

Fresh fish in Greece is a spectacular experience and you’ll find the freshest fish cooked to perfection time and again.

Freshly caught fish are inexpensive along the Greek coastline and topped with herbs, and lemon, you’ll remember the fish you eat in Greece for your whole life.

9) Bourdeto

Bourdeto Scorpions
Bourdeto Scorpions

Fish of the deep Mediterranean sea as Scorpions can be cooked in the traditional Corfiot way, Bourdeto, the same as Octopus, a very spicy and tasteful dish.

The Mediterranean flavors of Greek cuisine are mouth-watering and the combination of freshness, thanks to ingredients such as dill and lemon combine so well with hearty fare.

The mezze culture of Greek cooking makes every meal a communal experience. Yamas!

Bataria and Pipitos Beaches in Kassiopi Corfu

Last updated on November 30th, 2021 at 11:44 pm

Kalamionas beach Kassiopi
Kalamionas beach Kassiopi

Kassiopi shares the same geology with Erimitis, after all, it is in the same part of Corfu, the Northeastern tip with the many small bays and perhaps the clearest waters on the island.

Therefore here there are some beautiful pebble beaches in small isolated coves scattered all around the area.

The center of Kassiopi is around the port, which itself is a small natural bay with two small quaysides to protect it from the north winds, from the port start paths and roads to take you to the following amazing small beaches.

Beaches in and around Kassiopi

  • 1) Bataria Beach

    Bataria beach Kassiopi

    There is a small road that barely fits one large car, starting from the left side of the port, this road goes around the northern peninsula and leads to the first nice small beach of Bataria, near the north tip, north of the village.

    Bataria is an idyllic pebble beach, partially organized with sunbeds & umbrellas, some people describe it as a piece ripped from paradise because the site is peaceful, and the waters are incredibly clear and colored in an amazing blue-azure

  • 2) Kanoni Beach

    At the north tip.
    Very small, very beautiful, crystal clear waters in an amazing place. These are only some of the words you can use to describe this gem.

    People visiting this place stay speechless and fall in love with it.

  • 3) Pipitos Beach

    On the west coast of the base of the north peninsula, exactly across Bataria beach.

    Pipitos beach is not less beautiful, In fact, it’s in contrast with Bataria for being equal or even better.

    The same clear and azure waters can be found here too. The beach is reached by some steps from the main road.

  • 4) Kalamionas

    Kalamionas beach Kassiopi

    Shortly before the main road and at the east of Kassiopi, there is the beach of Kalamionas.

    A slightly larger beach and slightly less beautiful and more organized with lots of small shops, cafes, and bars.

    The name is from Kalamia, which means reed, obviously should be a reed that existed around there years ago.

  • 5) Imerolia

    It is the larger beach of Kassiopi, on the west side of the main resort, between Kalamionas beach and the football field of Kassiopi.

    The beach runs parallel to the main road that leads to the rest of the north part of Corfu.

    Imeroria beach is easily accessible and fully organized with water sports, sunbeds and umbrellas, and of course clear waters.

Corfu Sea Shell Museum in Benitses

Posted in: Benitses All Info 0

Last updated on November 4th, 2021 at 12:24 pm

This article is a historical reference to a Shell museum that existed once in Benitses Corfu.

In Benitses there was the Corfu shell museum with one of Europe’s largest collection of shells and other marine species, it was housed in a building on the highway at the entrance of the village as we enter from Corfu, but from 2015 onwards moved in a lobby of Potamaki hotel.

The museum was a gem for Benitses, not only because it was one of the few of its kind in Greece but also because the rich collection consisted of very rare and beautiful marine species, some of which claimed Guinness awards due to their rarity and beauty.

The museum and its exhibitions

Created by the diver and collector Napoleon Sagias who enriched the museum with rare findings collected during his 20 years traveling in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, diving and collecting shells.

The museum’s collection was huge, as important exhibits were the shell Kypraia foultoni, the shell Melo Amphora, the HALIOTIS IRIS from Zealand of the most beautiful in the world, TRIDACNA GIGAS the largest in the world. But also other poisonous shells, rare starfish, small and large stuffed fish, rare sharks, piranhas from the Amazon, many crustaceans, and others.

There were shells from Australia, the Philippines, the islands of Samoa, Fiji, the coral reefs of Australia, and other places.

Shell “Kypraia Foultoni” (Cypraea Fultoni) of the Cypraeidae family was one of the rarest in the world, it was purchased by Mr. Sagias in Mozambique from a fisherman who found it in the belly of a fish.

Shell “Melo amphora” of the “Volutidae” family was perhaps the largest in the world, was found in Rosemary Island at Dampier archipelago north of Australia.

In the museum, there was also a blue shark fished by a fisherman in the waters around Athens.

The maritime museum has been honored for his contribution and internationally prized by the Italian Institute of marine research I.R.E.D.A.

Besides tourists, frequent visitors to the museum were schools from all over Corfu and the rest of Greece.

The Shell Museum is permanently closed

We are sorry to announce that Mr. Sagias had passed away a couple of years ago, 2018, and his relatives couldn’t keep the museum open, so the Sea Museum is permanently closed and all its exhibitions have been sold.

Greece Travel on a Student Budget Made True: 6 Tips

Last updated on November 4th, 2021 at 12:57 pm

Greece is one of the most beautiful and amazing European countries. Thanks to its beautiful seaside, islands, and natural treasures, it’s on so many people’s bucket lists. And, while some people can easily afford to travel Greece comfortably, it could be a financial challenge for college students.

Still, there’s no reason you should give up on the idea of traveling Greece as a student. All you need is some guidance and better organization, and you can do it. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of 6 tips to make it possible for you to have a great time in Greece without breaking the bank.

Let’s break it down together.

1) Find the Right Accommodation

Accommodation is one of the biggest financial challenges you’ll have to face when traveling around Greece on a budget. Below, you’ll find our top three suggestions for cheap yet satisfactory accommodation.

  • Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is one of the most popular forms of traveling for young people. The concept is simple:

  • you find someone who’s willing to share their home with you for free
  • in return, you share your home with others as well

All you need to do is register on a Couchsurfing website and explore potential hosts and locations. This will save you a significant amount of money, even if you do it for just a part of your road.

Combining Couchsurfing with paid accommodation is great for exploring Greece since you want to visit as many different islands, beaches, and locations.

  • Hostels

Another thing you can do to save money on accommodation is to stay in a hostel. Hostels are great for young, adventurous people who want to make new friends.

You can find a great hostel in Greece for around $15 a night. It’s a huge money saver and a friend to your student budget.

  • Airbnb

Finally, there’s another great way to save money on accommodation. You can rent an apartment via Airbnb. This accommodation option is far cheaper than staying at a hotel.

Naturally, you’ll have to satisfy with a less comfortable option, but you won’t be spending that much time in your room anyway.

You can find accommodation for two people for less than $30 per night. That’s less than $15 each!

Spend some time exploring AirBnB to catch the best offers.

2) Eat Street Food

Greek street food is super delicious and nutritious. It may not be the healthiest option you have, but you’re only staying for a couple of weeks, so you might as well enjoy it.

You can find cheap yet delicious meals such as:

  • gyros
  • locally grown fruit
  • souvlaki
  • tiropita
  • koulouri

You’ll be well-fed and full, but you won’t have to spend a fortune on food. Even though it’s not the finest Greek cuisine, it’s still authentic. Plus, you’ll be experiencing local food as a true traveler should.

Street food in Greece is affordable and delicious, so this shouldn’t be a problem for you.

3) Rent a Bicycle

Greek islands are perfect for experimenting and exploring different locations each day. There are wonderful beaches waiting for you to discover them every day.

And, since you’re traveling on a budget, it can be quite challenging to afford to rent a car.

A Bicycle on the beach

However, you can reach the same places by riding a bicycle. A bicycle is a great choice because it’s:

  • affordable
  • healthy
  • exciting

You can find a bicycle for as little2€ per day, which is amazing.

You’ll get to see everything you’ve wanted, and you’ll manage to save your money for other necessities.

4) Go Off-Season

Greece is a country of tourism. That’s why from the beginning of June to the end of August, it’s the busy summer season in Greece, and the tourists start flooding in.

Naturally, the prices go significantly up during this season.

But luckily, the weather is great in both May and September. You should visit Greece in the off-season to save money and see it from a different perspective.

Plus, it comes with a lot of other perks:

  • fewer people on the beaches
  • peaceful
  • romantic

The off-season is a great way to save money but still enjoy all the beautiful sights in Greece.

5) Book a Flight Far in Advance

The closer the summer season in Greece, the more expensive is the flight to Greece. Planning your trip in advance could save you some serious money and allow you to travel comfortably even as a student.

Try to plan your trip months in advance and buy a plane ticket as soon as possible. That way, you’ll be able to:

  • find cheaper flights
  • get the best deal

The money you save here can go a long way once you find yourself in Greece, so consider this idea.

6) Be Your Own Tour Guide

If you want to explore Greece from a historical and cultural perspective, you can save a lot of money by being your own tour guide.

Here’s how to prepare yourself for touring Greece like a professional:

  • read online blogs and revision about places to visit and things to do
  • download an offline map of the area
  • download audio tours
  • read tour guides and forums
  • take notes and prepare your own tours

In case you’ve never written anything similar before, you can check out the websites that write essays for students. They can help you put together your first tour guide and use it to save money on your trip to Greece.

Some major cities like Athens even offer free walking tours you could join, which is another great way to save some money.

Final Thoughts

Greece is a mesmerizing beautiful country that you have to visit as soon as possible. And, if you’re worried it may be too pricey for you, just make sure you have a great budget plan.

Use the tips we’ve shared above to create a great strategy for visiting Greece on a student budget. Learn how to have a great time in Greece, even while saving money
