This year WhyGo Greece celebrated 5 years since the first article was published on the site. Along the years, we’ve published articles hoping to help you discover the beauty of Greece and make planning a trip to this amazing country a little bit easier.
As the year is drawing to an end, we’ve taken a look back at the most interesting articles published during the course of the year.
What I believe to be a perfect itinerary in Greece, might not be a good choice for others. But this itinerary is a good start to make plans. Best of all, you can skip certain stops and spend more days in other places.
Who said Greece is a summer-only destination? Certainly not me! I’ve always liked to discover the cities and countries when the hordes of tourists are not there, which means I travel during the low season (or maybe the shoulder season). This itinerary is a good choice for those who want to spend their winters soaking up the Greek way of life. And history.
While Athens is not known to be a very expensive destination , in general, the money you end up spending here depend a lot on your travel style. Between choosing low cost carriers, opting for a budget hotel (or hostel), walking a lot and using the public transportation to get to/from the airport, and choosing a free walking tour of the city, those traveling to Athens can save a lot of money.
Budget travelers joyfully choose the public transportation and opt out of paying extra for the taxi. This article explains how easy (and cheap) it is to get from the airport to the city center (and the other way around).
Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and one of the most popular among visitors. The articles offers some ideas for the things to do during your vacation in Crete.
I have never been a “foodie”. In fact, I can easily get by with a very frugal diet when I travel. But Greece offers plenty of interesting and delish dishes even for the picky eater that I am. The items on this article include tzatziki , dolmades and fassolatha.
During my stay in Greece I’ve learned two major things: Greeks don’t like to wake up early and the toilets can be pretty weird. Other things you might find interesting are: Greeks do speak English, especially if you stick to touristy places; and Santorini is not a very small island.
