WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN GREECE

With juicy meats, tangy cheese, homegrown olives, and rich pastries, Greek cuisine will keep you coming back for more. We’ll show you what to eat and drink in Greece, so you don’t miss a thing!

GYROS

Everyone goes gaga for gyros in Greece. These delicious wrap sandwiches (pronounced yee-ros) are a street food favorite, made with meat cooked on a rotating rotisserie and served in a soft pita wrap with fresh tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce. We’ll let you in on all the best girádika (restaurants that serve gyros) to try on your Greece holiday.

ELLINIKOS (GREEK COFFEE)

Do as the locals do and kickstart your day with a hot cup of ellinikos. The Greeks have a beloved daily coffee ritual that’s all about relaxing with a brew in hand. Whether you catch up with friends or simply watch the world go by, a Greek coffee experience is not to be missed.

AMYGDALOTA

These lovely Greek cookies are crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside… And packed with a delicious orange and almond flavor. Amygdalota are traditionally served after weddings and baptisms to symbolize new beginnings. You can try amygdalota in bakeries across Greece, but be warned - they’re insanely addictive.

WHEN IS BEST TO VISIT GREECE

Greece is particularly irresistible during the warmer months of summer, autumn and spring, with long sunny beach days and island hopping up for grabs.

BEST TIME FOR A GREECE CRUISE

Summer is the classic season to head off on a Greek islands vacation, but if you can’t handle the searing heat, try September and October with milder weather and superb Aegean cruises.

BEST TIME TO EXPLORE GREECE’S ANCIENT RUINS

The best time for Greece sightseeing is the shoulder seasons of March to May and September to November, when crowds are thinner and the weather is perfect for exploring ancient treasures.

BEST TIME TO EXPLORE THE GREEK COUNTRYSIDE

We love to go wandering the countryside around April and May, when pretty wildflowers bloom and the days are sunny and clear.

PACKING TIPS FOR GREECE

Boat shoes

If you’re taking to the sea on a Greek island cruise, remember to pack a pair of boat shoes and your favorite swimsuit.

Long, breathable clothes

This Mediterranean country is sweltering during the summer and warm practically all year round. It’s best to throw on some long light clothing when you visit Greece.

Sun protection

Prep for plenty of sun-drenched days on your Greece tour with extra bottles of SPF50+ sunscreen, good sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat.

HOW TO TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY IN GREECE

Help care for the beaches

You can help keep Greece's beaches beautiful by using reef-safe sunscreens, leaving shells and any wildlife where you spot them, and never leaving any litter behind.

Avoid buying coral products

If you're looking for souvenirs, avoid buying natural sponges or coral products in Greece. When they're collected irresponsibly it has a destructive impact on the marine ecosystems of the region.

Say no to plastic

Take care of the environment in Greece by saying no to plastic packaging and bringing your own reusable bottles and bags when you visit Greece.
