*Entry information is for U.S. citizens. Citizens of any other country should check with the Greek Embassy for specific entry requirements.

Medication: If you or any of your traveling party are taking prescription medicine, please carry an adequate supply as it may not be easily obtainable while you are traveling. Always place your medication in your carry-on luggage to ensure you have access to it at all times.

Food and Water: We recommend that you drink bottled water, which is readily available, while traveling in this region. You should take the same precautions with food and water as you would at home.

Travel Insurance: We strongly recommend that you purchase adequate travel insurance to protect yourself and your investment against any mishap or unforeseen circumstances. It's important to be fully protected prior (pre-departure trip cancellation) or during your travels, should there be any medical or other complication. It is important that you carry a copy of your policy while traveling.

Greece’s currency unit is the Euro. There is an exchange office desk at the reception of your hotel.
