60-second guide to Greece

In its own head...

For Grecians, doing something, anything, is only worthwhile if it’s done to perfection. That’s how we do everything here.

...but more realistically

There does indeed appear to be a certain quality or intensity to everything in Greece, but nowhere is perfect. Sometimes, for example, it’s actually too hot.

The vibe

The heat does nothing to dull the passions of the Greeks; although beaches and tourist spots are generally laid-back, the cities are busy, energetic and eventful.

The natives

The Greek people value family, hospitality and being open to debate and discussion. Expect to be warmly welcomed and enthusiastically included.

The weather

The unique geography of Greece means that the weather varies dramatically from one region to another. However, wherever you go you’re likely to encounter incredibly hot spells which could be accompanied by rain or winds. If you have a toga, pack it. Take plenty of sunblock and when in Greece, rent a car with air conditioning.

The local speciality

The Greeks love their food, it is rich, tasty and there’s generally an abundance of it. There are of course regional variations, but make sure to order the meze at least once. Wear elasticated clothing, don’t eat before you go and prepare for the long haul -this meal of appetizers seems to have no end and you will not leave hungry.

The celebrity

Depending on your GCSE experience of Maths, you can thank or despise Pythagoras and Hipparchos, just two of the ancient Greek celebrities who gave us mathematics.

Did you know?

Although Greece is credited with giving the world democracy, modern Greeks are given no choice in whether they vote - it is a legal requirement.

They say...

Experience endless miles of aquamarine coastline, sun-bleached ancient ruins, strong feta and stronger ouzo. The Greek landscape thrills, and Greek people are passionate about politics, coffee, art and gossiping. - Lonely Planet
