Athens Baptism- What to wear to Greek Orthodox Church

Jump to last reply

I am attending my grand-niece's Christening in Athens in September. It will be in a Greek Orthodox church. What is appropriate for a woman to wear? Touring churches in Europe I find shoulders should be covered. Sometimes knees should be covered. Does this apply? Are pants on women appropriate? Also, should the men wear a tie? Several of us non-Greek family members from the US are attending and want to dress appropriately for the occasion. Thanks.
