Practical Info

On this page, we will be adding all practical information that you need to know in order to be fully prepared for our 2022 Alfa Logistics Family Conference in Athens, Greece.

Food & Drinks

Greek food is loved all over the world and is known for being packed with flavor and using a lot of fresh ingredients. You can enjoy a variety of Greek food all across Athens, from delicious grilled meats being cooked up by street food vendors to exotic sweet treats at popular local restaurants.

Tipping

It is common to tip in restaurants and for taxi drivers or hotel porters. Some restaurants add a small service charge to the bill. Otherwise, a tip of roughly 10% is the norm.

Currency

Greece uses the Euro, which you can buy easily before you travel. Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted, American Express less so and Discover cards rarely so. In smaller shops or for small purchases, you might be asked to pay in cash.

Getting around

Athens has an excellent public transport system, consisting of city buses, electrical trolley-buses, tram, metro and suburban railways. Of course you can also use a taxi service, which are easily recognizable by their yellow colour.

Visa & Invitations

For all documents required for foreign travellers to enter Greece, please check the official guidelines of the Greek government.
