What do you guys prefer when you're traveling to Greece? I plan on visiting Athens and Zakynthos this year. Any advice on which is better in your experience?

Great question!

Few years ago my family and I went to Zakynthos and Athens and used an Airbnb and had a great experience!

I would say it depends if you want a place to cook and wash clothes then Airbnb in Greece works. If you want to not cook at all want to use a laundry service, pool and gym then a hotel would be a good fit.

Hope this helps!

Airbnb always! I feel like they're more worth it and much more comfortable to stay in. If you're traveling in a big group you can get a bigger airbnb and split the price between everyone and it'll be more worth it.

I agree with you. We were a party of 13 and stayed at AirBnB for mosst of the 3 weeks in different parts of Greece, except for our stay in Athens and Delphi. The owners and or their agents could not have been nicer often leaving fruit baskets for the group. But if you research hotels and apartments you can get some really good deals at the smaller places. We stayed away from the large commercial places. Thef next time we went we stayed outside of Alexandria in an AirBnB in the little town of Kymina which is about 40 minutes by bus west of Thessaloniki.

What are the best ways to practice my Greek online?

I've been in quarantine since someone at my work got covid so I'm trying to brush up on my Greek! My husband's family is Greek and I'm trying to connect with them a bit more and try to learn more Greek than just the basics. Any advice would be super helpful, efharisto!
