"Get to know the people. If..." Greece Favorite Tip by Martin_S.

Greece General: 654 reviews and 611 photos

Favorite thing: Get to know the people. If you learn a few words of Greek before you go and also learn the alphabet it will open worlds to you that tourists normally do not see.

Fondest memory: Driving into a town called Arta in the northwest of Greece and asking for directions using a map written only in Greek. The people were so astonished that we knew how to read Greek that they started to test us by asking us what signs said. After we 'passed' this test, we were invited to stay the night and enjoy a dinner and drinks with some of the local people.
