In the last couple of years, Greece is aggressively looking to tap the Indian outbound potential. Prior to the pandemic, the Greece Tourism Minister has visited India to further forge relationship in this market.
Speaking earlier at a virtual expo Harris Theoharis, Minister of Tourism, Greece, said, “For India and Greece, travel industry is a very important segment which has helped economy grow. The pandemic has forced us to think out of the box and how we can realign practices with the new normal. The health protocols along with training and testing regimes at the borders will surely ensure safety of passengers and citizens. I am glad that recently I visited India and it is a strategic market for us, which we are keen to develop. Greece stands ready as soon as conditions allow to open tourism and we would like to see people from India. We will always stand to help promote tourism between both the countries.”
Greece has been a primary tourist destination and attraction in Europe since the 1970s for its rich culture and history, which is reflected in large part by its 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, among the most in Europe. It is a land of myriad colors, diverse cultures and natural splendor. Every experience in Greece is authentic, elegant and beautiful. A country made up of islands of all shapes and sizes, Greece is a haven for the traveler, with its beautiful beaches, history, culture and culinary delights. One can get a plethora of memorable experiences from picturesque towns and cities, stone built villages, high mountains, deep gorges and rare wildlife. There is never a dull moment in Greece with activities such as sailing, diving, cycling, hiking and bird watching to engage the traveler. The eclectic aura around the destination is reflected through the co-existing old and new, adding a unique experience.
