Blog Guidelines

We encourage you to write about your travel experience in Greece!

Welcome to the Visit Greece Blog!

Are you a blogger? Do you love Greece and you want to tell the world with a blogpost? Then you are at the right place!
We invite you to write and send us your text about different destinations in the country, traditional products, customs and traditions, recipes, hidden gems and whatever else you love and fascinates you in Greece. It is necessary to accompany the text with contemporary high resolution photos / or any audiovisual material, you may want to share with us.

Please, read the following instructions and tips about your blog post:

Your blog post must highlight the destination as such. Brief references to travel related companies may be allowed within the article but without hyperlinks. All blog posts must be complementary (free of charge) and are edited by our team to match our policy criteria, if needed, with a prior notice.

Your blog post must contain your personal experience of Greece and the writing style should be adventurous and off-the-beaten track emphasising on informing your fellow visitor on what to see/do/experience within Greece. Articles such as “Top 10 List” – “Must See Destinations” – “What Do in ...” - “Favourite Greek Sweet Bougatsa recipe” are indicative themes.

It is important that every article (blog post) must be unique, original and have been written by you. If it has been previously published in a different website/blog or a print edition, permission must be granted to the GNTO in order for it to be posted on the Visit Greece Blog. Duplicate content (articles that appear on two different websites) is penalized by search engines (SEO) with a lower rating so if you do decide to share an article with us it would be preferable if you haven’t shared it in another website.
