Many people think that wine is for those with expensive taste. The reality is that you can find amazing wines at extremely low prices if you search in the right places. You can get ones that cost as low as four euros at your local supermarket and convenient store in Greece. If you’re traveling on a budget to Greece this year, I highly recommend that you opt for store-bought wine instead of ordering a bottle or glass at restaurants for example. There’s nothing better than getting a few snacks and wine from the grocery store and setting up a picnic on the beach.

It's also cheap at restaurants where you can order the house wine by the 1/2L or 1L.

When I buy Greek wine in the United States, it's always pricey. I'd imagine because of the costs of transport, taxes, etc? It makes sense that quality wines in Greece are considerably less expensive, especially when they're local. I love shopping at the markets to have food to eat while out and about - like a picnic on the beach is perfect! It's a lot of pressure to feel like you have to keep eating out several times a day.

The best time for us who used to work in blistering heat all summer day in day out without a day off nonstop 7 months was to make a picnic of fresh bread olives, different kinds of cheeses,cold Mezedes like fava, Taramasalata,Tzadsiki,Meliztzana,fasuolia and gallons of wine 😂😂🍷🍷......go somewhere peaceful in Mykonos....yes there are secluded beaches where no one goes!!!!....😂😂😂.....Ella Tora....it is not even 8am here in Thailand and I am hungry already.....The winters months were very special, hiking in the hills for hours with backpacks full of Food and wine 🍷...... Hmmmmm I miss Ellada very much sometimes.. but can't have everything..... our life is very beautiful here in Thailand too!.... Kalley Mera..
Ps:We used to buy wine from the wholesalers who supplied Tavernas and bars.....Cheap.... around €10 for 5ltr [email protected]% and €14 very good quality [email protected]%.....And rosé for €12 @11%..... drink forever!😂😂🍷🍷?😋

Nearly 8 Million Tourists Visit Greece in First Half of Year

The amazing Sarakiniko beach in Milos

Sarakiniko beach is probably one of the most stunning ones that I’ve ever been to. I went two summers ago, and from what I’ve heard Milos is becoming more and more popular by the month. I absolutely love this island, especially this beach. It’s a great spot to view the sunset and take photos. I definitely recommend it!

Best Photo Spots in Greece?

I am a photographer and I love to travel to Greece to take photos. I am scheduled to travel there again this fall, and I thought I would make a list of some places to visit. I am also wondering if you guys have any recommendations! Here is what I have come up with - chime in with some suggestions, too - I will be in Greece for at least a few weeks:

1. Temple of Poseidon - Cape Sounion (I hear there are great sunset shots here)
2. Oia, Santorini at sunset - I haven't sorted out quite where in the village yet butI figured I'd figure that out when I get there
3. Chania, Crete (I need some from here for my collection)
4. Slice of life types of photos in Athens and other cities
5. Plenty of food photos all over Greece

Let me know if you have some standout places/ types of photos I should take.

Making My Greek Travel Bucket List

I had a typical Greek-Australian upbringing in that my family came from Greece but trips back and forth growing up amounted to visiting friends and family. I really haven't seen much of the country and all that it has to offer. As an adult, I want to start visiting some of the places in Greece I really should see, but haven't had a chance. So, here's my list. What do you think I should add to it?

1. Visit the Parthenon - would you believe I've never really explored it? Usually we fly into Athens and then quickly move on to our destination.
2. Santorini - Again, I've never been. I want to go and see what all the fuss is about.
3. Kefalonia - I love hiking, and I heard this is a great island to explore nature?
4. Meteora - I've seen photos - it looks phenomenal and worth the trip.
5. Hydra - the fact that they don't allow cars here intrigues me - I know it's a day trip from Athens, but maybe it would be worth staying?

Any advice you give can help me plan a bit of a touristy trip to Greece. :) I do still have family and friends to visit, but I want to carve out some time to actually explore some places I have never been.
