    One of the commonest questions first-time visitors to Greece ask is “is it true that you can’t flush paper down the toilet?” Unfortunately, in the vast majority of accommodations, cafes, bars, shops and restaurants, the answer is “yes, it is true!” Much of Greece’s sewage systems was installed during the 1930’s and 1940’s (by the British) using small bore pipe-work that simply cannot cope with paper waste. A pedal bin is usually provided by the side of the WC in which paper should be placed

  • 20. SHOULD I DRINK THE WATER?

  • 21. WHAT SHOULD I PACK?

    What should I pack?

    Pack lightly Do not take much luggage with you because the trip might be long. Getting on and off planes or ferries will be very tiring if you have to drag your over-packed suitcase. Moreover, the paths in the islands are paved and it will difficult to carry many things. After all, you will not need but a couple of swimming suits, some light summer clothes and a couple of flat shoes or comfortable sneakers for walking. Also have a light sweater for some chilly evenings because the wind blows often in the islands. Take something even warmer if you going to rent a scooter. Source: www.greeka.com
