WEATHER

The weather is Santorini in Summer is just perfect! Lots of sunshine, so bring your sunglasses but also o summer coat, as the famous "Meltemi" wind sometimes gives a chilly touch in the afternoons. Summers rains are not that often, while the sea is rather warm, especially after the middle of July. See more
                           
 

 

 
 

CLOTHING

A specific dress code  applies only in some restaurants and high class bars and clubs. When visiting churches and especially monasteries, you are expected to be dressed "appropriately", meaning that women wearing pants or men wearing shorts might not be allowed to enter. Long sleeves are also required. A summer coat can prove to be useful for windy nights.

 

Nudism is generally prohibited, but there are beaches where you can practice it. Please check our Beaches section for details.

 
     
 

LANGUAGE

Most of Greeks, and especially those working in the tourism business, speak at least one foreign language. making it rather easy for you to communicate with the locals. The greek language is quite difficult but a "kalimera" ( = good morning) and a "efharisto" ( = thank you) are the best way to start a conversation with a local! See more

 
     
 

HEALTH

At the unfortunate occasion you find yourself facing a health problem or an injury, you can ask for help at the local Health Center. All kinds of emergencies are taken care of, without having to pay for the medical services provided. A small "entrance fee" of 5 euros might only be required. If a long stay at a hospital is necessary, covering medical expenses depends on whether you are a citizen of the European Union, etc.

 
     
 

CURRENCY & PAYMENTS

The nation's currency is Euro and it is the only currency you may use, when in Greece. All major credit cards are excepted in most of hotels, shops and restaurants, but you d' better ask before, if you intend to use your credit card. A credit card might be required for some services, such as renting a car. Taxis and public bus tickets can only be paid in cash.

 
     
 

SIGHTSEEING

Many museums and archaeological sites are closed on Mondays, while openning hours are not the same for all of them,  so always check before. Monasteries are closed to visitors after sunset. In almost all museums and art exhibitions, taking pictures or filming is forbidden.

 
     
 

BILLING & TIPPING

A receipt is always to be delivered to the customer for any kind of service or product. According to the Greek Legislation you are actually not obliged to pay, unless you are given your receipt. All shorts of public transportation tickets, are also the receipt for the money payed to obtain them. Tipping is almost never included in any kind of bill or payment. It is optional.
