When traveling to Greece, there are a few things to keep in mind when packing your suitcase. For the most part, you will be able to find any items that you can find internationally you can find in Greece. Just be aware that smaller islands and villages on the mainland might have a limited supply of toiletries and may not have many stores with variety. Of course, you will want to pack you clothes and any of your personal toiletries. Some items like sunscreen will be more expensive in tourist areas so its better to bring your own. It will be important to bring your medication, but if it gets lost you might be able to go to a local pharmacy and get some prescriptions there, you do not need to meet with a doctor to get most basic prescriptions. In terms of womens sanitary products, they differ in Greece as there are no plastic applicators for tampons, just cardboard ones. This is something that many people in other countries find frustrating! So just a heads up!

I had a big suitcase on a Ferry once so I checked it, and there was such a mad scuffle to the suitcases it was a nightmare. I will NEVER overpack in Greece again, especially if I have to go on a ferry. I wished I had brought my suitcase on the ship with me. Good advice about the toiletries, though. You never know what will be available in Greece!

What place in Greece do you regret travelling to?

I thought I'd ask a more of a provocative question on this forum. I'm absolutely in love with Greece, and I truly think that every single place in the country is beautiful. But of course, some things aren't for everyone. Which makes me ask the question, what place in Greece do you regret travelling to? I can't wait to see some of these answers and debate in the threads!!

Be aware! Some beaches in Greece may be nude

This is just something to be aware of when traveling to Greece and this may surprise you if youre not from Europe. Some beaches in Greece are nude, and when visiting a non-nude beach, you might see some women topless. This is not as popular is it used to be in Greece. I have noticed less and less women going topless but it still happens. It is not considered rude in Greece to do, especially in front of small children. If you don't feel comfortable, just politely move away or go to another beach!
