Great News. The number of American tourists visiting Greece, traveling individually or on cruise ships, is expected to rise this summer season, according to an announcement from the US embassy in Athens that was dispatched from the state news agency.

US Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission Virginia Bennett on Tuesday conveyed this forecast to authorities in Chania, on the island of Crete, noting that Greece is a popular destination for American tourists.

In a meeting with the region's deputy governor Apostolos Voulgarakis and the city's mayor Manolis Skoulakis, Bennett said that summer season bookings have increased; she will suggest to her friends and acquaintances to visit Crete because it is a warm and hospitable place, she added.

The American official also expressed satisfaction for the services provided to ships that have used local marinas and underlined that US citizens visiting Greece felt safe.
