What to pack for Greece



Greece is one of the worlds top travel destination with a record 30 million tourists in 2016. Let me put it straight if you are travelling to Greece i am super jealous of you because i miss it so much and If you have been, there is high chance that you share my excitement!!!!!!! 


I have not been everywhere in Greece but i have been to 4 destinations, the 2 most famous and visited cyclades island Mykonos and Santorini, the biggest cyclades but less touristy island Naxos and the capital Athens. So i have a bit of an experience and confidence also because i was able to use and wear everything i packed for my trip and did not feel ‘i wish i had that’ so you know what i am trying to say right. So today i am going to share some tips to make your packing process for Greece easier.  This list is relevant for Athens and destinations south of Athens. If you are going somewhere in the inland or north it might not work for you. Also the period of the year it will work for is late May to early October.

When it comes to the greek islands to name a few Santorini, Mykonos, Naxos, Paros, Crete, Kefalonia, etc and the capital Athens packing lightweight options that can be easily mixed and matched is the key. 

  1. Colours to pack for Greece are hands down white and blue. As i said in my what i wore in santorini post, i was glad i packed majorly white and blue pieces because there is something about the place that you do not want to disturb the white and blue image, specially for pictures, so i 100% recommend going primarily with those two colours.
  2. Lightweight dresses- Ok the sun can be pretty strong so to keep comfy pack lightweight dresses that do not cling to your body. If you have anything fancy to attend keep one fancy dress but if not casual dresses are great. Greece is pretty chilled out and informal.



  3. Shorts and blouses- Make sure they fit well, denim shorts are great but i took cotton and linen shorts because they are roomier and longer. For blouse you can go for off shoulder and one shoulder styles or the trending statement sleeves but do remember to keep basic tees and a white shirt.




  4. A backpack or a tote with zipper- So you can throw in all your essentials for the day including your camera and water bottle. I say with zipper because its secure so you do not have to worry about things falling out and also safe from the point of view of pick pocketing etc. Additionally you can also bring a cross body bag. And the fashion lovers a straw tote.



  5. The most comfortable flat sandals- Another rule of thumb for any travel is to carry your comfiest pair of shoes. For Greece you will be fine if you only bring flat sandals. Its pretty casual out there so heels is not a dress code even to fancy places for dinner etc and i would not even recommend bringing wedges because the streets can be cobbled and you will have to go up and down the stairs specially in Santorini.  If you plan to go hiking you can bring your sneakers but if you don’t flat sandals are enough. 



  6. Swimsuit- Come on Greece is surrounded by the Aegean sea and beaches are everywhere so even though there is so much to do and see, its really hard to not take a dip in the sea and spend sometime chilling by the beach sipping on some iced coffee.



  7. Sunscreen- Not just Santorini but Greece in general is white so the light reflects back at you. With the sun super strong you need to apply and reapply sunscreen after every few hours. Don’t feel strange if you see people applying sunscreen in the open and you shouldn’t even think twice about not doing the same.



  8. Sunglasses are a must not just for protection but also because otherwise you wouldn’t be able to keep your eyes open. Hats are great too but if you do not want the hassle of packing them or wearing them to the airport you can always buy there if needed.

I wore this outfit to explore Athens, white breathable maxi with trending white flat sandals. I carried my white shirt in my backpack and it was quite useful in the evening.

Hope this post is helpful, i also recommend reading my post on factors to consider before packing for any travel.

  9. Greece is very warm so I agree lightweight clothing is a must plus a good sunscreen to prevent burning! I've also found when I've visited Greece I tend to get bitten a lot so i also take an insect pen!
