    I m not in Greece but I read in a paper last week that many global corporations are buying land / buildings at crazy bargain prices as people are desperate due to conditions over there. So keep an eye open and buy land if you can.

    Good luck

    Despite the economic situation, Greece is not a bad place. At the moment, it's all about tax increase, demonstration, rally and complains everywhere . I had to turn of my heater cause it was just too damn expensive.

    What are good things for tourists to buy in Greece? I'll be in Athens, a few other cities and some of the Islands.

    Scully i don't have something specific on mind on what kind of things are you interested? do you mean for food?
    Also always ask for receipt in the taxis.

    This is all food, right? I think he's looking for souvenirs. Except maybe you can take home the honey and olive oil? What about other things like art, handmade goods, etc.?

    They have some nice pottery, hand-made beads but it's more expensive in Athens.
