Is now a good time to visit Greece, given the bad news about their economy?

Jump to last reply

I have long wanted to travel to Greece (particularly to see Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini), but the news about the problems with the Greek economy has raised some concerns. Do these problems mean that prices in Greece will be higher than usual or lower? Or does it matter? I was thinking of a 10 to 12 day trip in late August through early September, and, to save money, was going to start planning now. Any tips on saving money and time would be greatly appreciated. We are a couple, no children, enjoy nice restaurants, moderately priced accommodations, beaches, some nightlife, some sightseeing, would prefer to avoid renting a car if that's feasible.

Thanks,
ACC
