Useful Links: This is the official web site for the Greek Tourist Board. Everything that you need to know about Greece is here.It is informative but it is a shame that the site is only in English and Greek . It is not that easy to navigate and or well laid out. It is not a user friendly tourism website and as such we do not rate it that highly. This is the main website for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and provides a comprehensive list all Greek Embassies/Consulates overseas as well as a complete list of all foreign embassies in Greece.Good visa information.
