Having overcome the worst of the pandemic, Greece prepares for the coming tourism season, expecting record demand.

As minister of Tourism, Vassilis Kikilias announced, the tourism season kicks off in March, with the reopening of seasonal hotels, new flights from Europe and America (first flights from the US start in early March, flights from Canada start in early April ) and group visits organizes by tour operators.

The new campaign by the Greek National Tourism Organization presents Greece as an ideal “city break” destination, under the slogan “Greekend”. Athens and Thessaloniki are at the heart of the campaign, showing off their plethora of restaurants, museums, art events and shops.

To this end, the National Health Committee has decided to lift capacity restrictions for conventions and conferences. The premises will be allowed to work at full capacity, provided attendees are either fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19. Unvaccinated attendees can only participate online.
