My friend really wants to baptize her son somewhere in Greece with beautiful nature and scenery. Any recommendations on where to go? Islands vs mainland? What is better in your experience, I've never been to any baptisms in Greece

A few years ago I went to a Greek Orthodox baptism outside of Athens (I don't remember the exact place). Are you planing a christening for your family? Are you from Greece, if so which region? Please give us a bit more information about the details and we are happy to give you some recommendations. Thanks!! 🇬🇷

I have heard of people doing this but haven't had personal experience. There are a lot of churches in Greece but not all of them have active parishes with a designated priest because I believe there is a clergy shortage. So, this would be impossible to plan without knowing more details.

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!

What is the cheapest island in Greece?

This post is for all of my budgeters! I would love to know if anyone has advice on inexpensive islands visit in Greece. I have found that over the years, the prices of hotels and restaurants are increasing and getting way too expensive. I would love to keep traveling to Greece, because it’s my favorite destination but I don’t want to break the bank either. Any advice from seasoned Greek travelers? Thanks 😊

How expensive is it to travel around the Ionian islands by boat?

Chartering a boat to travel around the Greek Islands is something that I've always wanted to do but that I always assumed wasn't feasible. Has anyone done this with a big group and found that it's a little bit cheaper? Are there any packages or any tips that you recommend for going around the island that would make this a little bit cheaper?
