Hey everyone, is there anything I should know about dressing and clothing expectations (as a woman) in Greece? Should I dress modestly or is Greece just as casual as the U.S.?

Good question! You don't have to dress modestly in Greece (unless you're visiting churches or holy sites), especially if you're in a tourist or beach town.

Greece is similar to the rest of Europe in terms of fashion and dress standards. The fashion is very different from Canada or the US. I'm not sure where you're from. I would say wear what you are comfortable with. Greece gets very hot, and if you're going to be visiting a lot of sites I would say wear light and breathable clothing.

Should I get a Greek passport?

I'm Greek-Australian, and I've never considered getting a Greek passport until COVID made it easier to travel to Greece with proof of citizenship/passport. Do any other children of Greek immigrants have passports? Have you found it to be worth it?

Peloponnese vacation pictures!

I would love to see all of your vacation pics from Peloponnese or the mainland! So many people forget that it's just as nice as the islands. This is a beautiful hotel I stayed at in Peloponisos that used to be a monastery
