15 Essential Greece Travel Tips

From golden sandy beaches and dazzling blue skies to mouth-watering food, Greece offers a plethora of charms and irresistible attractions all year long. 

We wanted to share some essential Greece travel tips with you to help ensure that your trip goes smoothly. We also don’t want you to miss out on any of the classic Greek experiences!


With all that’s been going on in the world, we can’t stress enough how important it is to protect your trip and the money you spent on it.

Don’t forget to buy Travel Insurance

Greece is an extremely popular destination. Try to plan as far in advance as you can and book all the needed tickets in advance.

Buy your ferry, airplane, and train passes in advance 

Spend more than a week in Greece 

We’d recommend 2 weeks if you can. This will give you time to visit Athens, a couple of sights on the mainland, and spend a week in the Greek Isles.

Learn a little Greek lingo 

Learning their lingo isn’t exactly necessary. But, they will have a deeper level of respect for those who show effort in speaking their language.

Consider visiting during an annual festival or event 

This festival features numerous shows of music, dance, and theater. Even better, this festival gives you the chance to enjoy the ancient Greek Epidaurus amphitheater.

Pickpocketing is prevalent. Though Greek police have cracked down on some of these perpetrators, you should be aware of your surroundings, and hide your valuables.

Greece safety tips to be mindful about

Begin your Greece vacation in Athens. Not only is it the main international gateway to Greece, but it also has a host of fantastic, world-class attractions.
