The Cradle of Western Civilization
Greece is comparatively cheaper than other European countries and you can spend a comfortable holiday on a small budget. Though it used to be much cheaper in previous years, prices have gone up since it has become such a sought-after tourist destination. Options for budget and shoe string travel as well as luxury and 5 star travels are easily available throughout the country. The public transport system in Greece is well connected and affordable so getting from one city to another or one island to another is not very expensive. Food prices vary in places. You will get cheap meals in smaller Tavernas while the bigger restaurants are expensive. A daily budget for a shoe string traveler or backpacker inclusive of transport, accommodation and food will cost around €45 to €60.
