Referring to the US market, Kikilias underlined that “the Americans are what we call ‘high spenders’ and together with the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) we are intensify our efforts in this important market, which, as it seems, are bearing fruit”.

On the good results in the cruise sector, he said that it was a strategic choice, underlining that from February 2023, Royal Carribean will start winter cruises, which will promote the less popular tourism period, particularly for the US market.


ATHENS - Greeks and residents in the country often have to jostle with tourists to find space on public beaches being taken by businesses in violation of the Constitution but if you know where to look some unspoiled spots can be found.
