Greece now – one of the best destinations in terms of price and quality.

Greece once again relevant, and not only because here this summer rested Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. After  economic problems have left the country without tourists, but now, according to the booking of hotel rooms statistics, the travelers are back!


1. The Greek “champagne”

“Retsina” few who like the first time, but now Grecophiles in the yellow bottle (well chilled!) – This is a true taste of the Greek summer. This is a very light wine (11% of all strength), but listen to the advice of the locals and drink it with soda, which makes the drink simply divine.

Price: less than 2 euros per bottle in a supermarket

2. Food

Slices of juicy meat, just removed from the brazier, fresh salad, chips with tzatziki sauce – all wrapped in a warm cake … What could be better than a hearty snack in Greek pita bread ?! One – a light snack, two – have a complete meal. A vegetarian alternative – cheese or spinach pie straight from the bakery, still steaming and sprinkled with sesame seeds on top. No comments!

Price: 2 pieces – less $ 5

3. Dance till dawn

Log in many music bars in Greece free; just buy a drink and dance until dawn. These places do not close until the morning. Most starts closer to midnight. Dance bar Mikro Chorio in Tilos, an abandoned village in the hills, is famous for its open-air dance floor. You can admire the stars, and not just in heaven, in the last year here came Jennifer Lopez. Of course, she did not use a free shuttle bus, but still … Want something more traditional? Visit a local festival and treat Zorba inside.

Price: 5 euros per drink

4. Dive into relaxation

You have in the future – the contemplation of the sea watch: from the shore and from the “inside.” There is nothing more soothing than to slide under the water surface, looking for the brightest fish and sea stars in a small lagoon with a lot of stones and crystal clear water. If you deviate slightly from the famous to all tourists route, you have to be very quiet, secluded beaches. A great way to work up an appetite before dinner! Free recovery session you children in “Terme” near the town of Kos is in the sea among the rocks hit the hot underground springs.

Price: euro for the bus

5. Greek salad

As a joke, my friend, if the Greek government took tax on each “Greek salad”, which is served in a café across the world, it would be instantly solved the problem of public debt. Authentic original – simply divine: juicy, tasty tomatoes, crisp cucumber, onions and peppers, cream cheese, fresh herbs and olive oil – is the best recipe for lunch on the planet! Even Jamie Oliver would not be able to cook simple and delicious.

6. Choose where to go

In the summer is better to avoid the fashionable resorts on the Greek Islands (a sure sign of such places – information about what Hollywood movie was filmed here). In Greece, hundreds of islands. There are plenty to choose from and on the mainland. So, if you want to spend your money wisely, you need to move away from the stereotypes and choose something else besides the usual Mykonos and Santorini. In other places, prices are lower. Yes, it may take a trip on the ferry, but in return you get a more authentic experience. The farther away from the airport, the more measured pace of life!

7. Rooms with a view

If you are looking for something super-luxury, the normal room for two for 30 euros per day is more than enough. For the money (in the high season a little more expensive, but the price can be brought down if you stay at the hotel for a week or more), you can enjoy excellent views of the sea or mountains. Find a suitable option is simple. Often, in addition to the basic services in a room has a balcony and kitchen – a refrigerator where you can cool Greek champagne. Another option – to follow the example of hippies and find free space for tents on the beach, or like Eristos Delos.Summer couples and even families with children stopped here for a month. Still would! After all, it is here – the best views in the world: blue water during the day and at night – the stars and the moon the track on the surface of the sea.

8. Specify how to get

Be sure to check out the internet and compare the price of the ticket for the ferry from different carriers. Catamaran or boat tour can cost twice as expensive than the slower big ship. But on this ferry, you can find a place on the deck and enjoy the sun, its rays substituting for the face and at the same time admiring the famous blue Greek waters. From the airport more profitable to get on the bus (only costs a few euros). With taxi drivers, you can bargain, if you are traveling in a group. In this way, at the airport of Rhodes can bring down the price of travel to a city hotel to acceptable 22 euros.

9. Go to the ruins

Be sure to take a trip to Athens visit some of the most impressive museums in the world. By the way, the ticket price in them are not so high. Acropolis and the Archaeological Museum – the minimum program. Throughout Greece there are millions of cultural values, which form the museum exhibits – old but not boring! You can simply stroll through the ruins, the benefit of this free fun! Why not, if you do the same geese ?! The ancient churches and castles have even the most God abandoned corners of Greece. Here you can safely wander through the ruins, getting great pleasure also on the lack of crowds. And if you go anywhere in the mountain village, and even get a free workout for the heart and blood vessels.

Price: in Athens, for 12 euros you can visit the Acropolis, the ancient and the Roman Agora, the Temple of Zeus, the Keramikos Library and Theatre of Dionysos.

10. Not a single shopping!

After working up shop at home or anywhere else! And in Greece, it is necessary to enjoy a cool drink, burying your feet in the sand and listening to the chirping of cicadas.
