Do you need tip in Greece?Tipping isn't seen as a necessity but if you feel you've had good service then it's always nice to leave some change at the end.
Smoking is popular in Greece so most places have designated smoking areas. It's banned inside public places.
Greek is the main language across the mainland and islands. English is widely spoken in tourist areas but we think it's a good idea to learn a few key phrases and words to help immerse yourself in the culture and authentically enjoy all the things to do.
