Καλώς ήλθατε (Kalós ílthate) to Greece, where ancient myths merge with sun-kissed beaches and mouth-watering cuisine. You'll transact with the Euro (€) as you traverse this land of legends.
Denominations: Greece, a part of the Eurozone, uses Euro coins (ranging from 1 cent to 2 Euros) and banknotes (from 5 to 500 Euros).
ATMs: Known locally as ΑΤΜ (pronounced as ATM), these machines are easily found in cities, tourist areas, and even on some islands. However, ensure you have enough cash when venturing to less touristy areas.
Cash vs. Card: While many establishments accept credit and debit cards, it's always wise to have some cash on hand, especially when exploring local markets, small taverns, or remote islands.
Tip: Tipping isn't compulsory in Greece, but it is a sign of appreciation. In restaurants, cafes, or taxis, rounding up the bill or leaving a 5-10% tip is customary if you're pleased with the service.
With your Euros in tow, dive deep into the wonders of Greece, from its rich history to its vibrant present!
