Are you planning a trip to Greece? As you can see from our 100+ articles, this beautiful country is one we can’t get enough of! Here’s where you can find our best Greece travel tips, island guides, and personal experiences.

Since we started our travel blog, we’ve made a point to go to Greece at least one month per year. Each visit we try to explore a different part of Greece, whether that be the islands or vast mainland.

Over the years, we’ve explored the Cyclades and Dodecanese island chains. We’ve also written extensively about the Greek ferry system which is a great way to get around.

On our most recent Greece trip, we drove through the Peloponnese region, toured the monasteries of Meteora, and then enjoyed the beaches of the Ionian Coast. We even spent a few days on the stunning island of Kefalonia.

Many travelers will start their journey by flying into Athens, and using the ferries to hop around the islands. Yet, as you’ll see in our blogs, you can’t sleep on the Greek mainland either!

When starting to plan out your Greece trip, there are definitely a few things you should know first. Check out all our Greece travel guides for tips, and to hear all about our own experiences. Also, be sure to taste as much local Greek food as possible!

Greece Travel Tips

Money: The Euro is used throughout Greece.

Location: Greece is located in Southeastern Europe. It borders Albania, Bulgaria, Turkey, and North Macedonia.

Language: Greek is the official language of the country.

Seasons: The most popular time to visit is during the warm summer months. This is when you can take advantage of the stunning beaches, islands, and outdoor activities.

One of our best Greece travel tips is to see the country during shoulder season before or after the peak months of July and August. This is especially important if you’re heading to popular destinations like Santorini.

What to Eat & Drink: Greek cuisine is so delicious! It features a great mix of seafood and hearty meat dishes, with an abundance of sweet treats as well. They play host to a number of great beers and wines, and you can try the local liquors of Ouzo and Raki if you wish.
