Greek Independence Day, the national holiday celebrated annually in Greece on March 25, is on Friday, giving all of us an automatic long weekend! According to a recent survey, Thessaloniki is the top choice of Greek travellers.
Corfu, Delphi, Eleusina, Ioannina, Kalamata, Larissa, Lesvos, Messolonghi, Piraeus, Rhodes, Salamina, Samos, Tripoli and Volos are candidate cities for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2021.
Greeks and tourists visiting Athens that used the metro at Syntagma last week had the chance to get informed on many Greek tourism destinations, taste local products and attend a series of local cultural events at the 4th Greek Tourism Destinations & Traditions Expo.
Greek tourism destinations are currently being promoted through culinary experiences in restaurants in Brussels as part of the “gaΣtronomia@Brussels” initiative of the Greek National Tourism Organization office in Belgium.
