4 things that are reasonably cheap in Greece

Greece ● 09 February 2017
 

Are you a budget traveller searching for a low cost place to spend your vacations? Greece is the perfect country to visit because it combines the beauty with reasonable prices. What makes Greece the ideal low cost destination is not only that there, you can find top budget destinations, but also that all over Greece, there are some things, which are reasonably cheaper than in other places in Europe.

1. The food

Greece is famous for its food, and the most famous dish is souvlaki. This street food meal costs only 1-2€, and its taste is something that you won't forget. In Athens, you can also find many street food restaurants with sushi, pizza and pasta as well as bakeries with traditional pies, which cost 1-2€ too. For breakfast, you can eat the famous koulouri, the sesame bread that costs 0,50€ and is sold on every corner.

2. The coffee and the water

The coffee in Greece is cheaper than in other European countries, but it is more remarkable the fact that the water, which everyone wants to drink together with coffee is free. Water is free everywhere, in restaurants, bars and cafes, but if you want to buy bottled water, it is cheap too because its price is standard all over Greece: 0,50€.

3. The public transport and the taxis

Taxis in Athens are affordable, and on the islands or in smaller towns, the cost for a cab is not important (with 10€, you can go almost everywhere). However, if you don't want to spend your money for taxi, the public transport, especially in Athens, is convenient, and the tickets are cheap. With 2-3€ per day, you can visit every worthwhile corner of the city by subway, tram or bus.

4. The entertainment

In Greece, drinking alcohol is a low-budget habit. You can enjoy your favourite music in one of the numerable Greek bars without having to worry about the cost. You can drink a prim cocktail with only 9€, ouzo and raki with 4€, wine and beer with 3-5€ and all alcoholic beverages, such as gin or vodka with 6-7€. And because entertainment is not only the alcohol and the bars, in Greece, you can enjoy another activity that is perfect for your health, mind and attitude. Swimming is free, and most beaches are public, waiting for you to lie on them and get excited with the sun and their crystal waters.
