3. Stay Hydrated

Greece may get very hot during the summer, so it’s important to drink plenty of water. Make sure you always have a water bottle with you and stay hydrated all day. Choose bottled water instead of drinking tap water. Keep also in mind that water bottles in Greece are relatively cheap.

4. Be prepared for crowds.

Greece is a well-liked summer vacation spot, and during the busiest months, many sites can become congested. In order to avoid waiting in line, make sure you get your tickets in advance whenever you can. Try to visit popular locations in the early morning or late afternoon, when there are fewer people around. A great option is to explore various other places, less known, with imaginable beauty—hidden gems. You always have your car-rental to move around though, if not, take a look!

5. Learn some Greek phrases.

Even though the majority of people in Greece speak English, picking up a few Greek words and phrases can greatly enhance your experience. Your efforts will be appreciated by the locals, and they will also make it easier for you to get around the nation.
