Easter ‘Exodus’ Climaxes Despite Economic Crisis

Greeks are leaving their cities behind and traveling to villages to celebrate Easter. The ‘exodus’ from urban centers for the Easter holiday is expected to climax on Thursday and Friday.
Traffic police throughout the country are on standby, while extra measures have been taken to facilitate excursionists.
The Easter exodus is expected to be bigger than last year, despite the economic crisis, spurred by weather forecasts of better conditions than last year’s, with plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures.
Bookings of trains, airplanes and ships have reached 90 percent capacity, not taking into account last-minute travelers.
