5 things you didn't know they are free in Greece

Greece ● 08 October 2017
 

Some things that are truly expensive in other countries are free in Greece, and probably you didn't know that. Greece is the paradise for budget travellers, and if you want to travel on a budget, a wise option is to choose Greece for your affordable vacations. Of course, you can save money with cheap Greek hotels and ferry tickets deals, but generally Greece is a budget destination, and you will appreciate it only if you come here for your holiday!

Water

In most European countries, a bottle of water is very expensive, and the restaurants don't serve tap water or they offer it with charge. In Greece, in every café or restaurant you go, tap water is being generously offered totally free. Plus, if you want to buy a bottle of water, it costs only 0,50€.


Dessert after dinner or lunch

It is a tradition according to the Greek hospitality that a sweet or a glass of sweet wine is offered in the restaurants and taverns after lunch or dinner. Thus, before paying the bill, you can taste something sweet and feel happy about your delicious meal.

Many ancient sites and museums

Ancient sites and museums in Greece are reasonably cheaper than in other European countries. Plus, in cities with a plethora of historical sites, such as Athens, you can find all-inclusive tickets and deals to visit everything you want to see in a couple of days without having to pay a fortune. Moreover, there are also free admission days in many Greek museums and sites as well as free museums the whole year. An incredible fact is also that many Greek ancient sites, such as the Long Walls in Piraeus, Pnyx in Athens and Kouros Statues in Naxos, are not fenced, and you can visit them without any entrance fee!

Swimming

Most beaches in Greece have no entrance fee. Many free beaches are secluded and unorganised, but the good news is that especially on the Greek islands, even the organised beaches charge only the sunbeds and the umbrellas but not the entrance to the beach. Thus, you can swim, enjoy the turquoise waters of the Greek sea, lie on the beach and feel the warm sun on your face and body totally free.


Guided tours

Guided tours are an easy option to explore a city, but sometimes they can be really expensive. Well, not in Greece! Especially in the large cities, such as Athens and Thessaloniki, are being offered free guided tours from local people, who are the most appropriate persons to show you a destination. Can you imagine a better way to explore a city and meet new people?
