Greece Travel 101

Here are the essentials to get started planning your trip to Greece. Even before you start considering islands and other destinations in Greece, this will help you define your dream trip.

Quick Tips and How-tos

Packing for Greece

Little things can mean a lot when you're planning your trip to Greece ... and knowing some simple details can make the difference between a smooth trip or an unnecessarily challenging one.

Getting to Greece

There are many ways to get to Greece - some wildly romantic like a four-week transatlantic and Mediterranean repositioning cruise on a luxury ocean liner. Some are simple - hopping on a plane. And some challenging, like driving across Europe or piecing together a train trip through the Baltics. But however you choose to go to Greece, the journey will be worth it.

Getting Around Greece

Congratulations! You're in Greece. Now how do you get out of Athens?

Maps of Greece

Having a good map of Greece in your pocket - and perhaps another, bigger map of Greece in your baggage - can make the difference between a frustrating and confusing trip to Greece and one that lets you expand your horizons painlessly.

Tours and Cruises of Greece and the Greek Islands

Organized tours of Greece may not be for everyone, but for many travelers to Greece, combining a tour or cruise of Greece with your own independent travels provides the best of both Greek worlds.

Events and Festivals
