    Greeks have their own halloween!

    Greeks don't celebrate halloween like they do in the US and around the world. Greeks have another holidays called "apokries" which is celebrated ten weeks before Greek Orthodox Easter. Everybody dresses up in costumes and there is usually a parade in the street. So don't expect to see much on...

    Why are taxis to and from the Athens airport so expensive? Any way to avoid this?

    That's a good point, thank you. I just didn't know why they charged a bit extra from the airport. I guess it's standard

    Why are taxis to and from the Athens airport so expensive? Any way to avoid this?

    This is such an annoying problem that I always run into! I visit friends in Kapandriti and it really isn't accessible any other way and buses are really a hassle with a bunch of suitcases. Is there any way around this fee? And is it with all taxis?
