Get around at Greece Campervan Hire
Intercity buses are a very popular option for domestic travel. KTEL is the national government-subsidized network of independent businesses which cooperate together to form a dense route system serving almost the entire country. The system is efficient, reliable, and relatively inexpensive.
Trains are another inexpensive way to get around, but the national rail system is extremely limited.
Exploring the country by road can be an extremely rewarding experience, allowing you to explore the incredibly scenic and varied terrain of the country’s coastlines, interior, and islands, at your convenience. However, many Greek drivers tend to drive agressively, and many narrow roads in mountainous regions to take several twists and turns. Roads are usually well-marked and well-maintained.
To get to the islands you will mostly have to take a ferry. There are extensive connections from Athens and in-between islands for “hopping.” Ferries are about the one thing in Greece that leave on time so BE PROMPT. There are two ports in Athens: the main port Piraeus and outlying Rafina. These serve all islands, but northern islands such as Lesvos, it is better to leave from Rafina.
Greek is the national official language and is the native tongue of the vast majority of the population. Foreign languages are widely studied, and most Greeks have some command of one or more foreign languages. English is the most widely studied and understood of foreign languages, followed by French, Italian, and German. Basic knowledge of English can be expected from almost all personnel in the tourism industry and public transport services, as well as most Greeks under the age of 40. However, learning a few Greek terms, such as “hello” and “thank you” will be warmly received.
Food at Greece Campervan Hire
Greek cuisine is a blend of foreign influences and home-grown traditions. The traditional Greek diet is very Mediterranean, vegetables, herbs, and grains native to the Mediterranean. Being a highly maritime nation, the Greeks incorporate plenty of seafood into their diet. The country is also a major producer and consumer of lamb; beef, pork, and especially chicken are also popular. Olive oil is a staple in Greek cooking, and lemon and tomato paste are common ingredients. Bread and wine are always served at the dinner table.
The cuisine in Greece can be radically different from what is offered in Greek restaurants around the world. Greek restaurants abroad tend to cater more to customer expectations rather than offer a truly authentic Greek dining experience.
Eating out is Greece’s national pass time and a rewarding experience for visitors. In the past, restaurants that catered mostly to tourists were generally disappointing. Thankfully, the nation’s restaurant industry has grown in sophistication over the past decade, and it is now possible to find excellent restaurants in highly-touristed areas, particularly areas that are popular with Greek tourists as well. Thus, it remains a good idea to dine where Greeks dine. The best restaurants will offer not only authentic traditional Greek cuisine (along with regional specialities) but Greece’s latest culinary trends as well.
