If your flight arrives in Greece at night, stay awake on the airplane so you can sleep when you arrive at your hotel. Don't drink large amounts of caffeine, because your sleep cycle will be disrupted. Try to go to sleep the previous day at the time you would sleep if you were already in Greece. Don't overdo it the first couple of days. If you are tired, you can sleep for an hour, but only if it is before late afternoon, so you can sleep regularly at night.

43. Behaviour and etiquette of Greeks – What should I be aware of in regards to my behaviour in Greece?
The Greeks are very outgoing, friendly people, with a lot of passion and enthusiasm. It isn't strange to see friends hugging and kissing in the middle of the street. The Greeks' passion is evident in their discussions, which are often carried on in loud voices. This doesn't mean that they are arguing; they are just expessing their opinion enthusiastically.
During your stay in Greece you will often hear the word “yia”, as in “yia sou” or “yia sas”, which means “hello” in singular and plural, respectively. “Yia” is also used when clinking glasses of wine or of other alcoholic beverages, as in “yia mas”, which means “to our health”. After the second glass of wine, spirits are especially high, you will hear “yia mas” with practically every sip! Many Greeks call a waiter over by snapping their fingers. You can do this as well, but it is best to avoid snapping your fingers, especially if you are dining in a high-class restaurant. A brief look or a nod of the head is usually enough for the waiter to understand that you want his assistance.
In Greece you will notice some unusual facial expressions and gestures. “No” may be expressed by a quick lifting of the head upwards and raising of the eyebrows. Sometimes this is accompanied by a sharp “tisk” sound. You may see someone holding his hand in front of him, palm out and fingers spread, in the direction of a particular person or thing. This is called a “moutza” and it is considered a great insult, so don't do it ! If a Greek hasn't understood what you have said, he may crinkle his brow and rotate his hand in your general direction, like he is wondering what you are trying to say. You will also notice that Greeks thank people by resting their hand on their heart. If a Greek acts like he is spitting on you three times, he is trying to prevent something bad from happening to you. This is not an insult, but done because you are beautiful, successful or something else that others would envy.
Greeks are very hospitable and may want to be friends with you. They like conversing with people from other countries. Most often, intentions are pure and they just want to welcome you in their group of friends. In rare cases, intentions may not be that pure, so proceed accordingly.
Cross streets only where there are traffic lights, and only when the light is green for people and you have made sure that the cars have stopped. Many drivers don't respect the pedestrian crossings. You may observe that there is quite a lot of pushing going on in the vehicles of mass transportation. This happens mainly due to stress and haste, rather that rudeness. Greece is a country where public protests and demonstrations are permitted. During your stay, you may come across a demonstration going on in the streets in the center of Athens. Don't fret, there are other roads that you can take to get to your destination that aren't blocked be the demonstration. Just ask one of the policemen monitoring the protest.
Taxi drivers are prone to take more than one customer in their vehicle. If you don't want to share your taxi with other people, inform the driver after you have started off for your destination. On the other hand, if you don't mind sharing the taxi cab with other customers, you will have the opportunity to meet new people and perhaps make a new friend in Greece.
The internationally famous Evzones, who guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of the Parliament Building on Syntagma Square, are similar to the guards at Buckingham Palace. They are on duty, and they are forbidden to speak, look around, or smile. You can take a photograph with them, but don't disturb them in any way, for it is disrespectful.
Finally, Greeks are extremely proud of their culture and their country. Always respect the archaeological, historical and natural sites, and avoid saying disparaging remarks about the country and the people because many Greeks are knowledgable in foreign languages.
