"Not everyone speaks Engl;ish" Greek Language Tip by irvbur

Greek Language, Athens: 5 reviews and 3 photos

Favorite thing: Do not assume the cab drivers speak English. Have someone at the hotel desk write out your destination(s) in the local language on the back of the hotels card. Write the same thing in English on the front of the card. Use a separate card for each place you want to visit. Show the card to the taxi or bus driver. Make sure you have the name & address of your hotel written in the local language. Keep the cards, they make great momentos.

Address: Athens
