The problem of getting an accommodation at Easter, in July and August arises as many of the accommodations are pre-booked. So, it is best to book an accommodation in advance or check for the availability before your travel.
Prices are low from October to April; medium in May, June, September; and high in July and August as this period comes under "peak season". If you are planning to travel in "high season", it can add some extra bucks to your budget.
When in Greece, why not stroll in the mainland. Mainland boasts beautifully stunning places to visit. One of them is Pelion, a mountainous peninsula in the center of Greece.

There is a saying, "while in Rome, do as Romans do". The same goes for Greece. Try some Greek outfits, eat the way they eat, try to speak a little Greek, but never forget to hold an amicable attitude while trying these new things. Where the young generation is considered as modern and open-minded, the old generation may hold the orthodox and conservative attitude.
Asking the Greeks for directions sometimes may leave you perplexed. Getting lost in a strange place gives you an equal chance of inviting fun as well as danger to your side. To save yourself from this nuisance, keep a "travel map" with you all the time while traveling.
However, Greece is not generally unsafe but the economic crisis has caused a rise in the theft cases. To save the hassle, a little care is needed. Be careful while in crowded places and not leave your belongings unattended.
Greeks are friendly people who love talking to other people, whether they are known or unknown. This gives you a great opportunity to mingle with them and enjoy different activities such as basketball, football, water polo, gossiping and many others in the country.
