Greece: High Prices, Expensive Country?

"Prices remain particularly high in Greece", eKathimerini

"Greece remains an expensive country...In Greece prices are also considerably higher than in other EU states for the purchase of alcoholic beverages"

Greece is certainly expensive for Brits who need to use their credit cards to obtain Euros at ATM machines in Greece, as a result of the fall in the value of sterling, and other deductions/bank costs.

Few people seem to be deterred.

Food prices at restaurants remain very reasonable, and it is surely wrong to state that alcoholic beverages cost more than in other EU states.

Tsipouro, retsina and local wine (in the carafe) are all relatively cheap, and ouzo is still priced competitively. Tsipouro and ouzo are usually served with a tasty meze, an added bonus.

It depends what you drink, and where you drink it!

Water is hardly costly, but most people buy it in plastic bottles, rather than drink tap-water.
