Thirty cruise ships have already included Thessaloniki in their summer sailing routes. Thousands of tourists are expected to give a boost to the city’s market until November.
Despite the fact that the already planned cruise ships visiting Thessaloniki are less by three this year, they will carry far more tourists on board. The first cruise is expected to reach the city’s port on May 24, while the summer season will come to an end in early November.
At the same time, international media keep publishing articles on holidays in Greece and suggest that the country should change its tourism profile to deal with tourists’ needs.
Zorbas and Greek syrtaki belong clearly to the past now. According to experts on tourism, Greece should try to attract younger tourists by providing modern entertainment facilities.
One of the top advantages of Greece is, of course, its cuisine, which remains a secret to most tourists since Greek tavernas and restaurants insist on encouraging them try only Greek souvlaki.
Besides, promotion of health tourism in Greece could bring more visitors and could make the tourist season longer, increasing the money to be made from visitors, and the country is also full of thermal spas, a treasure that should be taken advantage of.
