Dimitris Fragakis ◆

Secretary General Greek National Tourism Organisation


ver the last months, Greek tourism faced the worst crisis in its history. The losses in revenue and jobs are of great importance, considering that tourism accounts for more than 25% of GDP. In 2020, besides the difficulties, we managed to save 20% of the arrivals of 2019, which was a record year for Greek tourism. In 2021, the Greek

government implemented, early on, a very broad and well-designed plan for tourism and, thus, Greece was the first country to announce the opening for tourism. Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis

was the one who proposed the timely adoption of a Green Certificate that facilitated travel between EU countries. Tourism businesses and employees successfully implemented the health protocols keeping our visitors safe. With everyone’s support, our country achieved the goals set for 2021 and laid a solid foundation for next year. However, there are still important challenges ahead of us. We want the final recovery of Greek tourism to be accompanied by changes to certain structural elements; further emphasis on the sustainability and authenticity of our tourism product, the maintenance of a sense of security and the digitalisation constitute main goals for the day after the pandemic. Greece starred during the two years of the health crisis, enhancing its brand. Hence, we will continue with high levels of energy and efficiency over the next period so that the sector fully recovers, and Greece acquires the position it deserves in the international tourism markets.

he islands of the South Aegean Region, the islands of the Cyclades and the Dodecanese, where the heart of Greek tourism beats, invite you again this year for the most beautiful and safest travel experience! At a time when global tourism is being tested by the greatest crisis in its history, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Greece and the South Aegean in particular, with the seriousness, maturity, plan and organization appropriate to one of the largest tourist destinations worldwide, managed to

make a difference and safely welcome millions of visitors in 2021 have become an example and model of managing the global health crisis.

Following the impressive performance of the four years 2016 - 2019, where the islands of our Region broke one record after another, maintaining a permanent position at the top of the podium as a national champion in tourism and a pillar of the Greek economy, in 2020 they achieved a real feat: to attract tourism in the midst of a pandemic, in conditions global tourism had never seen before. The experience and reliability in managing this extremely difficult situation, turned into a vote of confidence in our islands from dozens of countries in 2021, which was reflected in the arrivals of over 3 million visitors in more than 20,000 international flights at the five international airports in our Region: Rhodes, Kos, Santorini, Mykonos, and Karpathos. Almost all the smaller islands of the South Aegean managed to even surpass the landmark year 2019, with 2021 now being a reference year! The above- mentioned data, which reflect the strong influence of the South Aegean on the entire tourist product in our country, are the greatest reward of the strategic choice of our Region to work with dedication on tourism, on terms that suit a champion. We are not going to remain passive before the developments. We play a leading role in the development of local tourism strategy, which in fact is a national tourism strategy if one takes into consideration the fact that the South Aegean, with the most important „brand names“ of destinations internationally, Mykonos, Santorini, Rhodes and Kos, holds 40% of the share of the Greek tourism market. We only see new challenges in the new conditions, no matter how difficult they may be. We respond to the modern needs of our visitors and the new trends that the pandemic is shaping in global tourism. The tourism feat of 2020 and 2021, proved it. Greece, the South Aegean won the most difficult match they ever gave! We continue trying, we continue planning in „alarm“ conditions and this raises the standards of safety, quality, and organization. With respect to the millions of our guests who consistently give their own vote of confidence in our country and our islands, we keep it up in order to be able to return the trust by providing the most wonderful and safest holiday experience.

Regional Governor of the Region of Crete


he strength for the island of Crete lies in its people. The hearty expression of the Cretan decency, the non- negotiable sense of pride, generosity, and hospitality. These ideas are closely associated with space and time. They

remain unchangeable in every corner of Crete, in its towns and villages.

The favorable position of the Cretan land, on the crossroads of the ancient Mediterranean civilizations, constitutes the main reason why this great civilization developed. Its monuments have turned the island into a “museum” of unique features.

Those who are lucky enough to visit the island, from the Madares in Chania to the crests of Psiloritis, and from Asterousia to the mountains of Lasithi, confirm that Crete has learned to maintain its special characteristics, its clear language, vivid images, crystal sea waters, and clean yards of the village houses. Crete is well aware of its identity all year round. The visitor enjoys this opportunity to embrace the island, experience everything that makes it loveable, optimistic, extrovert and above all strong, as well as to experience its authenticity.

Panagiotis Nikas ◆

Regional Governor of the Region of Peloponnese


ear visitor, the Peloponnese undoubtedly constitutes a popular tourist destination which is gaining more and more fans. It is an area which turns the trip and tours into a fascinating experience as it combines natural beauty with top quality choices in dining and accommodation.

The History and Culture of the Peloponnese constitute an international heritage, which visitors can discover in the numerous excellently preserved monuments. Epidaurus, Mycenae, the

medieval castle cities of Mystra, Monemvasia, Nafplio, and Epidaurus are located in this area. Our long- term goal for the promotion of our tourist product using modern tools and mechanisms is assisted by the tourist campaign, already implemented since August 2021, helping even the most demanding traveler to discover the area’s “hidden secrets”. These “secrets” are associated not only with our history and the natural environment but also with our remarkable gastronomical tradition and the variety of choices for special tourism. Taking into account all this, we believe that the Peloponnese is a powerful attraction pole, which promises unique experiences suited to the spending power of each visitor, with its warm smiles, friendly servicing and above all top-quality services. Have a great discovery tour! Best Regards

Regional Vice - Governor for Tourism

ear visitor, The Peloponnese undoubtedly is one of the most beautiful areas in Greece. Its interesting geomorphology, the evergreen nature, the ideal climate and its deeply- rooted historical past make it a real earthly paradise. It is by no accident

that 5 out of the 17 Greek monuments listed by UNESCO are located in the Peloponnese.

Specifically, these monuments are Mycenae, Tiryntha, Mystra, Epidaurus and Epicurious Apollo. The infrastructure and transportation networks available and which are constantly expanding, have created ideal conditions of access and accommodation for all tourists. This mosaic also includes cultural and sports events which attract tradition and adventure lovers. For the promotion and recognizability of our Region as well as to boost tourism both on a domestic and European basis, a tourist campaign was launched in August 2021, whose main feature is a video spot mainly focusing on the social media. It is also worth mentioning that during the first month there were 790.000 views of the video spot on the social media and more than 1 million on YouTube. The view rate, 48,93%, is excellent according to the KPIs. Taking all these into account, it is understandable that it is worth visiting our Region. The experiences you will have and the carefree time you will be spending here are going to compensate you for the time and money invested. Best Regards

position it deserves as an up-and-coming tourist destination both in the domestic and international tourist market. Western Greece has significant historical and

archaeological monuments, including ancient Olympia, the sacred area where the Olympic Games were held in the ancient times, rare natural beauty, gastronomical variety, clean beaches and unchartered mainland which can offer an authentic tourist experience to its visitors all year round. The Region of Western Greece has a modern transportation network, with two major roads, Olympia Odos and Ionia Odos, an airport and a hospital while important investments are also being implemented aiming at supplementing, developing and modernizing its tourist infrastructure. At the same time, we systematically invest in the tourist promotion of Western Greece, via our dynamic presence both in domestic and international Tourism Exhibitions.

Nikolaos Korovesis ◆

Regional Vice - Governor of Culture and Tourism of the Region of Western Greece


ear Readers, there is no doubt that tourism is one of the major financial activities worldwide; its proportions have influenced international economy and the lifestyle of millions of people. The development in tourist industry products, such as

religious and gastronomical tourism, as well as agri-tourism have create new working positions in fields where originally there was little financial activity, thus increasing both the national gross product of several countries as well as the income per capita. The Region of Western Greece, realizing the importance of tourism for our country as well as the need for development and adaptation, is adopting

new programs and promotion models, aiming at turning the departments of Achaia, Ilea and Aitoloakarnania into top destinations in the entire country while at the same time ensuring that the professionals in the sector of tourism receive proper training in order to offer top quality services. In view of all the above, we are inviting you to visit and meet the beautiful areas where the Olympic Games were born: the Region of Western Greece.

orld Travel Market London 2021 and the republication of the English feature of MONEY & TOURISM, make us optimistic, thinking that hardships are all behind us now, and we may look forward to 2022 as a landmark year for the recovery of international tourism. Despite the limitations and the insecurities of the circumstances, Rhodes was promoted this tourist

season as one of the most popular destinations in Greece and managed to open its tourist season safely. As a result, arrivals of tourists in August and September were far beyond all predictions.

The British market considerably contributed to this huge success and this was not accidental. Rhodes, the emerald island in the blue Aegean Sea, with its endless natural and cultural resources, has been a long-standing favorite destination in the minds and hearts of our British friends planning their holidays. And that’s the reason why there is an ongoing relationship of trust, and Rhodes welcomes our British visitors just the way it welcomes good friends. Based on this steady relationship of trust, we can build the following day. We can reinforce the relationship of Rhodes with the United Kingdom market and multiply the opportunities and potentials for co operations. Rhodes constantly upgrades and enriches its tourist product, with emphasis on sustainable development and the restriction of its ecological footprint in its tourist activities. There are new infrastructures with optimal services of hotel accommodation. So, our invitation to our British friends is ongoing since Rhodes can always offer them, either with nostalgia or discovery a unique travel experience!

President of the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels

he very fact that World Travel Market London is opening up again signifies a dynamic restart of the international tourist market. The desire to travel, discover, reconnect, and communicate face to face is stronger than ever after the pandemic, and it seems that if there are no unexpected changes in epidemiological data, this will be able to express itself in 2022. That is why World Travel Market London is now in the center of

international interest of the tourist market, which is optimistic that recovery is just around the corner.

A sign for this recovery is the 2021 season. Greece confirmed its position in the top international tourist destinations

and proved that it can aim high and be successful. It opened up its tourism setting health safety as its priority and gave the opportunity to millions of friends from around the world to spend their holidays in a safe context, in landscapes of incomparable beauty and unique monuments of its long history, including exceptional gastronomical experiences, di-

versified entertainment and above all, genuine hospitality which has always been a feature of the Greek tourist product. This success becomes a steppingstone so that Greek tourism gets even higher with sustainability and innovation as its top priorities. Investments aim at reducing the ecological footprint of tourist activity, new technologies are applied, our tourist product is enhanced in quality and thematically enriched, in accordance with the new international trends dominating the international tourist market. Greece steadily remains within the top tourist destinations for the United Kingdom market. It is a long-standing relationship, established on the principles of trust and good cooperation which proved resilient even in the midst of adversities and restrictions caused by the pandemic. In this way, we may look forward to a leading role of the United Kingdom market in this prospect for sustainable quality tourism. We can always reintroduce Greece to the United Kingdom as an international destination. A greener Greece, more intelligent, more qualitative, and accessible to everyone. It is worth working together and taking advantage of the success of the past to aim even higher. We can create more and better possibilities for our British friends to have the quality tourist experience they have been dreaming of in Greece, by meeting its brightest, smiling and optimistic side.

Grigoris Tasios ◆


President of the Hellenic Hoteliers Federation

he pandemic caused the greatest shock ever suffered by international tourism throughout its modern history. All of a sudden, we found ourselves in uncharted waters without a compass. People want to share their lives with other people. They want to travel, create memories, share holiday dreams, seek freedom in nature. So tourism has been promoted to a deep human need and this drew the attention of different countries, their governments and organizations, thus considerably contributing so that we can gradually get over this shock, mitigate fear and panic, and start reclaiming those moments which make our lives worth it.

The Greek summer of 2021 just proved that. Greece, as soon as restart towards tourist normality restarted, became a leader in the international market and managed to have a tourist season which outdid even the most optimistic forecasts.

The British market positively contributed to this performance, confirming even amidst the most adverse conditions, its leading role in Greek tourism. Admittedly, nothing just happens nor does success work on autopilot. There is this tradition of a longstanding relationship of trust. For the Greek hoteliers, a British visitor is not just another customer. They are our traditional friends; In good times and bad times, just like true friends do. This relationship revealed its dynamics in August, September and October, standing above he challenges, uncertainties and insecurities of this timing. So, there was a dynamic end for the tourist season with the contribution of our British friends. Mutual trust is a valuable chapter which we are able to and should take advantage of in the coming years, responding to the international trend for travelling and human reconnection. It is the ideal momentum to invest in the dynamics of Greek tourism and the upgraded brand “Greece”. Greece is changing; it is being upgraded, using resources and modern tools to reinforce and upgrade its infrastructure in order to attract sustainable investments, releasing the dynamics of spare comparative advantages, protecting its natural heritage, and promoting its cultural identity. So, I am certain that in the years to come, the bonds between the Greek- British tourist cooperation are going to grow even stronger creating new opportunities and possibilities for our British friends, either to recall or discover Greece: its destinations all year round, whether popular or unknown; the sun; the seas; its mountains and natural beauties; its culture, from the Parthenon to modern art creations; its special gastronomy; the entertainment it offers through a wide variety of alternative suggestions, and, above all, its welcoming smile and the warmth of our hospitality. The presence of Greece in the World Travel Market London just points out this message: we can do more, we can do better!

wo years is a long time. It was back in November 2019 when I said goodbye to my favorite city of London and World Travel Market. Who could ever imagine what was about to follow…. Last year, 16 years later, the edition you are holding in your hands did not come out. Nor did the exhibition take place. Our lives changed completely. And so did our holidays.

Greek tourism remained strong, leading the international tourism both in 2020 and 2021. It offered people in so much need for holidays the chance to enjoy the unique Greek hospitality, under the bright sun, on our exceptionally beautiful beaches, absolutely safe and in compliance with the strictest specifications for the Covid-19 pandemic. The United Kingdom residents this year also had the chance, despite some delays, to spend their long- awaited holidays in Greece; some of them are still on the Greek islands or the mainland. 2022 is going to be the year for the comeback to normality according to reliable data, and Greece is going to welcome tourists from all over the globe, enjoying their holidays more than ever before. Greece is waiting for you, in safety, hospitality, anticipation and love. You are most welcome!!!

Northern Greece Being a «melting - pot» of disparate cultures as early as the ancient years, appearing as a realy «endowed» land in every way and possessing a really deeprooted history and a unique natural wealth, Northern Greece charms every visitor, as it provides them generously with plenty of opportunities to wonder in the real depths of history and tradition.

he journey to Northern Greece begins in Macedonia and it is completed in the bordering Thrace. From an administrational point of view, Macedonia is divided to three parts, Central, Western and Eastern Macedonia. In Central Macedonia, the first area in every visitor’s itinerary is Imathia Perfecture, in which «Seli» and «Pigadia of Naoussa» Ski Centers can be found. Apart from these two Centers, Aliakmona’s Valley, some bushy green mountains and the well known Vergina Archeological Site lure each visitor. Veria is the capital of Imathia Perfecture, a city spread out in the foot of Vermion mountain. Among other worth visiting cities, one could point out Naoussa, an overwhelmingly green city. One of the most well known Perfectures of Greece is Thessaloniki Perfecture. The city of Thessaloniki, also known as «The bride of Thermaikos Gulf», is Perfecture’s Capital, it is considered as «The Co-Capital» of Greece and, at the same time, it is aknowledged as one of most important ports in Greece. The famous «White Tower» is considered as the city’s «trademark». While in Thessaloniki, one can visit St. Dimitrios church, lots of interesting museums and of course «Rotonda», a monument dated around 300 p.d., as well as Galerios Arch. Really close to Thessaloniki, one could find Chalkidiki, one of the most beautiful places in the whole greek territory,

In this area, one can visit ancient cities, prehistoric cages, Byzintine convents, modern seaside towns, elements of the greater «puzzle picture» of Chalkidiki land. The city of Poligyros is the capital of Chalkidiki Perfecture, a city spread out in an amphitheatrical shape, on the foot of Cholomontas mountain. Nearby, one could find Arnaia, an area characterized as «historic land» by Ministry of Culture. Also known tourism resorts in the same area cities such as Kassandra, Kallithea, Nea Moudania, Nea Kallikratia, Ouranoupolis and Ammouliani. Of course, well known at a global basis is «Mount Athos» or the «Garden of Virgin Mary» as it is often called in Greece, a well respected monastic state, in which entrance is denied to women. Doirani lake, Axios river and the whole bushy green landscape are some of the advantages of Kilkis Perfecture. Capital of this Perfecture is the city of Kilkis, a beautiful city built on the foot of St George’s hill. As for the neighbouring Perfecture of Pella, the whole area is characterized by its inexhaustible natural and cultural wealth. Edessa is the capital of this Perfecture, a city which overlooks the whole macedonian valley. Passing to Pierias Perfecture, the «scenary» is formed by Kilometres of sandy coastlines, Olympus Mount which is the higher mountain of Grecce and, according to Greek mythology, it was also the formal residence of 12 Gods. The capital of this Perfecture is Katerini, a city built between Olympus Mount and Pieria Mountains. When it comes to Western Macedonia part, the first Perfecture to came across is that of Grevena. The rich flora, the unspoiled forests, the National Preserve of Pindos Mountains with its well known «Valia Kalnta», as well as the water sources and waterfalls create a unique nutural ensemble. The city of Grevena is the capital of the Perfecture, a city situated at tha same spot with the ancient city of Elimaia. The city of Kastoria, a city spread out along the banks of the homonym lake, is the capital of the homonym Perfecture. Kozani Perfecture is also considered as one of the most «endowed» lands of Macedonia. The whole «picture» is composed by a complex of mountains and lake shore areas. The city of Kozani is the capital of this Perfecture, a city with old styled mansions. In Florina Perfecture, the landscape is often said «magic». Little and Big Prespa, the twin lake area wich is considered one of the most important aquatic habitat in Greece, the traditional village of Nymphaion, as well as the picturesque island St Achillios, create a unique «scenary». The city of Florina is the capital of the Perfecture. Going far east, we reach Drama Perfecture. The high mountains is Perfecture’s main characteristic, with «Falakro» mount being the leading one, considering that it’s the mount where the homonym Ski Center is situated. Kavala Perfecture combines brillianlty mountain with sea related delights. The city of Kavala is the capital of this Perfecture and is a modern city with interesting night life. The cities of Philippoi, a very important city from an archeological point of view and Chrysoupolis, attract hundreds of visitors every year. The Perfecture of Serres is really famous for its aquatic habitat in Kerkini lake, the Lailia forest, the hot springs in Nigrita,

as well as the ancient city of Amphipolis. The city of Serres is the capital of the Perfecture. The mosques in the turkish neighbourhood add a very special characteristic to the city. Worth visiting places are, among others, Alistrati with its famous gorge of Aggitis, Amphipolis, Nigrita with its thermal sources and Sidirokastro, next to the fertile valley of Strymonas river. Thrace have always been considered as a crossing point between East and West, as well as a «bridge» of communication between Europe and the Balkan area. The first Perfecture to meet during one’s course to Thrace is Xanthi. The city of Xanthi is the capital of this Perfecture, a city with a clock tower as a «trademark». Passing on Rodopi Perfecture, every visitor is amazed by this peaceful co-existance of Orthodox Christians, Pomaks and Muslims of turkish origin. Komotini is the capital of Perfecture, a city that is considered as the «heart» of Greek Thrace. The capital of the homonym Perfecture is Alexandroupolis, a city with an astonishing lighthouse as a «trademark». In Soufli, one can learn everything about the different stages of silk processing. In Evros Perfecture we can also find the «proud» island of Samothraki, standing in the northeastern corner of Aegian Sea. Edition 2021
