Discussion in 'Greece' started by Polizeu, Feb 19, 2013.
there's never been a better time to go to Greece because of people's perception of Greece not being safe, which isn't true. It's not unsafe by any means for tourists and you're bound to find great offers. My advice is to have cash in euros with you and forget credit cards. Donâ€™t rely on ATMs for cash because the banking system there is in a bit of disarray because of the euro thingy.
there have been and still are numerous protests and strikes in Greece but they primarily in Athens so, it isn't affecting the main tourist areas. Oh, and use cash. Greece has always been a place where people prefer to receive cash.
Like the others have said, carry cash instead but be careful with it, of course! You will probably find things cheaper now and artisans will be more willing to bargain and sell. However, it's still a great time to go and the bad news is not something that should affect you as a tourist.
