Essential Experiences in Greece

Travelers to Greece often find that narrowing down their options can become overwhelming because this country has a nearly endless amount of offerings to enjoy. To lend a hand, below, we have provided three experiences that we consider to be essential when visiting Greece for the first time:

Sail Along Mykonos’ Stunning Southern Coast

You can bask in the sun as you explore the wonders of Mykonos’ southern coast via a luxury sailboat.

Helicopter over Santorini

You can fly over Santorini with an aerial sightseeing tour that will introduce you to the island from a unique vantage point.

Visit the Oracle of Delphi

You can take a day trip to Delphi, which will allow you to step back in time and learn about one of the world’s most ancient landmarks: the Oracle of Delphi.

Travel Considerations

These tips will help guide you as you prepare for your departure to Greece to help ensure that your journey is stress-free.

Weather

For those looking to avoid Greece’s most intense weather, particularly the heat of the summer, you should plan your 10-day trip between April and June or during September. This is also an excellent time to visit Greece’s more popular islands, such as Mykonos and Santorini, because the influx of tourists will not have arrived yet.

Transportation

Greece has ample bus and tram systems, especially in its larger and metropolitan areas. Several ferry companies operate year-round, delivering visitors back and forth between most islands. You should note that these ferry services are limited throughout the year, particularly between October and March.

Another mode of transportation that visitors may want to consider is renting a car. This mode of transport allows you the flexibility to explore at your own pace. The majority of roads on the mainland are well-marked and well-maintained.

Figuring out the logistics of how you will get to and from places can become overwhelming. Luckily, Zicasso eliminates every possible hassle by handling your transportation needs for you. Zicasso ensures that you have private transfers between destinations.

Packing

Weather Considerations

Greece’s winters are temperate and mild, and temperatures rarely get very cold. If traveling during the winter months, packing a pair of light pants, jeans, a light jacket, a sweater or two, a few pairs of shorts, and an assortment of shirts or sundresses should be adequate to keep you comfortable throughout your journey. If you are traveling during the warmer months, you will not need to pack any warm clothes except for a long-sleeved or two and a pair of pants.

Electrical Considerations

Greece uses type C and F outlets, and the standard voltage is 230 V.

Pharmaceutical Considerations

There is no shortage of pharmacies in Greece, which means that you should have no problem finding your basic pharmaceutical necessities. If you are traveling to a smaller  island, you should research the availability of such amenities.

Travel Insurance

You’ve booked your dream vacation, now protect it with travel insurance. A wide range of factors can leave your vacation in limbo. Medical emergencies, inclement weather, and unexpected cancellations can cause turmoil for your trip, so in the unlikely event of a disaster, get the travel insurance coverage that provides peace of mind.

Travel Documents

Carrying the appropriate travel documents is essential for any traveler when visiting Greece. Therefore, packing the proper paperwork is vital for making your journey pleasant and stress-free. The following list includes the most important documents that you should always carry with when in Greece:

  • Personal medical information
  • Pertinent information regarding any medical condition(s) from your doctor, especially any medication that you are taking
  • Emergency contact information
  • Passport
  • Visa
  • Proof of airline tickets and reservations
  • Customs forms and documents

Your Zicasso travel specialist will be able to provide requirements that are specific to your trip, although responsibility always lies with the traveler to ensure that all is in order. Travel requirements can change with little to no notice, so it is wise to stay updated as your trip approaches.

Finances & Tipping

As you make your way through Greece, you should have no problem finding banks and ATMs that readily accept a range of debit cards. Euros are also accepted by nearly all Greek vendors. Before your journey, you should contact your bank and alert them of your travel schedule and plans.

Vendors at most open markets will welcome haggling over the price of their goods. On the contrary, this practice is not welcome in reputable retailers.

Although tipping in Greece is becoming more widely accepted, it is by no means obligatory. Further specifics on appropriate amounts if you want to tip can be provided by your Zicasso travel specialist.

Safety & Accessibility of Resources

Greece is considered to be perfectly safe for foreigners. It is always a good rule of thumb for travelers to exercise precaution when using public transportation or when in crowded areas.

Crime Rate

Greece is considered by the United States Department of State to be a safe country to visit. Although Greece does have instances of pickpocketing and purse-snatching, such occurrences are mostly concentrated in the more crowded tourist areas and on public transportation.

Medical & First Aid

Since pharmacies are plentiful in most parts of Greece, it is highly likely that you will be able to purchase all needed first aid or medications during your vacation. It is always smart to pack all of your necessities, including any and all medications that you have obtained from your doctor.

Water & Food Safety

Greece is a modern European country, and there are no food or water safety issues that you need to be worried about during your vacation. If you are planning to travel to the smaller or more remote islands, it is wise to research the availability of clean water and other common amenities.
