What not to do in Greece

Don’t be that Brit who…

…makes noise during the siesta (it’s still sacrosanct in rural Greece); smashes plates in the taverna (the outdated preserve of bouzouki clubs); wears shorts and a bikini to a monastery (watch out, or a monk will bundle you into some kind of goat-hair cassock); or haggles over the bill (when Greeks argue over a bill, it’s about who has the privilege of paying for everyone else). Don’t alienate yourself —follow my Greek etiquette guide for The Sunday Times and you’ll blend right in.
