Getting into the land of gods and myths, I really want to see everything and everywhere, but the budget does not always allow. There is no need to despair, because there are many ways to save on tickets to museums or even get to some attractions for free! Today we will tell you how.

Get ISIC

If you are a student, the easiest and most reliable way to get a discount in museums in Greece is to use an ISIC card, which confirms your student status abroad. The card is valid in Europe, Japan, China and some countries in South and North America. Specifically in Greece, you can get a discount of up to 50% on it in almost all museums. You can get it from ISIC representatives, it is better to find out about the details of obtaining a card in your city at official website

Sometimes in Greece you can get a discount for museums on a regular Russian student ID – be sure to try it!

Drive off season

During the high tourist season, which lasts from April to November, most Greek attractions double their price tag. Love history but want to save some money? Then go to this country in the off-season. The weather will be suitable for walking, and the price will please the eye.

Buy a single ticket

There is a single ticket system in 17 regions of the country. You can buy a subscription to several museums and archaeological complexes at once. The validity of the ticket varies from 2 to 5 days, and the cost is from 3 to 30 euros. If you are planning to visit more than three or four historical sites, then it is more profitable to take a subscription.

Download the guide app

An ideal option for those who do not like group excursions, but prefer to wander the streets of Greek cities on their own, is a mobile application with an online guide. For example, in Izi Travel you can find excursions to different parts of Greece, up to the island cities. By the way, when you look at the route itself, we advise you to look in the comments with reviews! Often tourists leave them secret cheap places of Greece.

What places can you visit for free

Since Greece is the birthplace of mountains, you should definitely look at the beauty of the country from the top of one of them. Many hiking trails are free, and even the famous Olympus can be climbed without spending a dime! However, it should be understood that if you are not an experienced hiker, it is better to contact for help from professionals… Sometimes a tour from the city, which includes transportation, excursion, entrance ticket, guide and uniform, is cheaper than traveling on your own.

A few more life hacks on how to save money in Greece and beyond

Experienced travelers have known this for a long time, but if you are traveling to Europe for the first time, it is better to take your MasterCard with you. This way, you will avoid a commission by paying in euros, since banks charge money in dollars from Visa cards. Try to have breakfast and lunch in establishments farther from the center, prices in such places are inflated especially for tourists, and the food itself does not always meet expectations. By the way, another way to save is to order one dish for two: in Greece, there are usually gigantic portions.

When choosing a place to stay, never be afraid to consider hostels as an option. Today, many of them offer conditions no worse than in hotels.
