Cur­rency: The cur­rency in Greece is the Euro (EUR; sym­bol €) = 100 cents. Notes are in de­nom­i­na­tions of €500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5. Coins are in de­nom­i­na­tions of €2 and 1, and 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 cents.

ATM’s, banks and cur­rency ex­change units are plen­ti­ful in Athens and more busi­nesses are ac­cept­ing credit and debit card pay­ments though cash is still a fre­quent means of pay­ment. Most types of credit card are ac­cepted though prob­lems can oc­cur with Amer­i­can Ex­press. Bank branches are gen­er­ally open from 8am-2pm Mon­day to Fri­day. Any cap­i­tal con­trols on Greek banks gen­er­ally do not af­fect for­eign ac­counts trans­ac­tions.
