I can't remember if there is a dress code for visiting churches in Greece. I know in monasteries they tend to be stricter, but many have skirts or scarves you can borrow at the door.

If I wanted to attend a church service or simply visit a church or monastery, how is it that I would need to dress? Is it okay for women to wear pants?
 
A dress or a skirt would be more preferable. Also avoid sleeveless shirts.

There is. It's better to wear a skirt on your own but in places where it's really super important, they had some skirts hanging up on hooks that you could borrow before walking in. They're sort of designed like aprons and you just tie it on over your clothes.
 

Question about scuba diving in Greece

I'm currently planning a trip to Greece, a destination that has long been on my bucket list, not just for its history and cuisine, but especially for the scuba diving experiences it offers. I've heard that Greece boasts some incredible underwater landscapes, from vibrant marine life to fascinating wrecks.

Given the vastness of Greece's coastline, I thought I would try to see the country in a different way.

Let's say I want to go scuba diving in a particular island. How do I go about doing it?

Visiting Delphi worth it?

I am trying to figure out if visiting Delphi is worth it. I want to fit seeing as many historical sites as I can into my itinerary. I've always been fascinated by ancient cultures and their histories, which naturally puts places like Athens and Santorini on my list. Recently, I've been reading up on Delphi and am intrigued by its significant historical and cultural value, not to mention its picturesque landscapes.

Given its status as the center of the world in ancient Greek civilization and the home of the famous oracle, it sounds like a place full of fascinating stories and ruins. However, I'm also aware that Greece is full of remarkable places to visit, each with its unique allure.

Sustainable Travel to Greece?

I'm currently planning a trip to Greece and am passionate about making my travel as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible. Given the beauty and historical significance of Greece, I want to ensure that my visit contributes positively to the environment and local communities there.

Does anyone have any tips or experiences they could share on sustainable travel practices in Greece? I'm looking for advice on everything from eco-friendly accommodations, sustainable dining options, to ways of exploring the country that minimize my carbon footprint. Also, if there are specific activities or tours that support local conservation efforts or communities, I'd love to hear about those too!

I love Greek cuisine. I cook it all the time and I love trying new recipes. The time has come for me to think about planning a food tour! Does anyone have any advice?

  1. Which regions or cities offer the best food tours?
  2. Any specific food tour companies or guides that you would recommend?
  3. What were some of the standout dishes or culinary experiences on your tour?
  4. Are there options for people with dietary restrictions, such as vegetarians?
  5. What should one expect in terms of cost and duration?
Any tips or advice on how to get the most out of such a tour would be greatly appreciated too! Thanks!

  1. Which Cruise Line Should I Consider?
  • Are there specific cruise lines that you would recommend based on personal experience that cater well to exploring the Ionian Islands?
  1. Best Time of Year to Go?
  • When is the ideal time to take this cruise? I've read varying reports on weather and crowd sizes throughout the year.
  1. Must-Visit Islands and Attractions
  • For those of you who have traveled to the Ionian Islands, which islands were your favorite, and are there any must-see attractions?
Thanks in advance!
