Greece is gradually becoming a popular tourist hub for Canadians. According to a recent data published by the Bank of Greece, in the period January-September 2013, arrivals from Canada to Greece rose by 88.1% compared with the first nine months of 2012. This is good news for Greece tourism as it would help to boost the nation’s economy substantially.
