Barter in the markets
You’ll find a whole host of markets wherever you are in Greece so you’ve got plenty of chances to practise your bartering. Foodie’s will love the Central Municipal Athens market – in Athens – where you’ll find everything from meat and seafood to herbs and spices, as well as fresh produce. There’s even traditional Greek restaurants within the markets where you can be sure to try some Greek delicacies. This is the biggest food market in Athens so if that’s what you’re after, this is where you should be.
Alternatively, in Kos Town you’ll find a smaller market that sells almost everything, perfect for picking up fresh fruit and veg, as well as gifts and souvenirs for those back home. Nea Moudania in Halkidiki has another market to not be missed. It’s the biggest, open-air market in the area and has a huge shopping centre nearby if you’re ready for a switch up.
Sample the nightlife
After busy days of exploring Greece it’s always nice to head out and unwind with a drink or two. In Greece you have ample options, choose to hit the clubs and break out some dance moves together on islands like Zante, and Mykonos. These islands can both get pretty wild with huge clubs, famous DJs and of course, beach parties.
Most of the Greek islands have the option for booming nightlife, but they also offer cosy bars, cocktail lounges and places to make the most of happy hour before heading home. A must-do on holiday in Greece is to enjoy a drink in a Greek taverna with some authentic Greek entertainment – you’ll find these across all the islands.
