MONEYGreece is no longer a cheap country. Prices have rocketed since the adoption of the euro in 2002. ATMs are to be found in every town large enough to support a bank – and certainly in all the tourist areas. If you’ve got MasterCard or Visa/Access, there are plenty of places to withdraw money. Credit cards are now an accepted part of the commercial scene in Greece just about everywhere. The main reason to carry travellers cheques rather than cash is the protection they offer against theft. They are, however, losing popularity as more and more travelers opt to put their money in a bank at home and withdraw it at ATMs as they go.
Greece can be divided into a number of main climatic regions. The Attica Peninsula, the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, Crete, and the central and eastern Peloponnese have a more typically Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and milder winters. In July and August, the mercury can soar to 40°C (over 100°F) in the shade just about anywhere in the country. July and August are also the months of the meltemi, a strong northerly wind that sweeps the eastern coast of mainland Greece (including Athens) and the Aegean Islands, especially the Cyclades. Spring and autumn are the best times to visit Greece; specifically May, June, September and October.
