Trikala happens to be Greece’s smartest city, with amenities including free internet, driverless buses, sensor-equipped streetlights, and 5G technology. It also contains plenty of history, serves as a gateway to the country’s mountainous north...

You’ll find lots of ruins to explore, including the Palamidi Castle, and an array of beaches to kick back on. Don’t miss the wonderful small seafood tavernas in the area - the experience doesn’t get more Greek than this. https://bit.ly/2UIfTyc

If you’re a history buff and looking for a day trip from the capitol, Nafplio in the eastern Peloponnese is a great option. This city was the capital of the newly formed Greek state between 1823 and 1834, and its history traces back to the prehistoric era.

Greece has been going increasingly digital, and the banking sector is no exception. Today, more than 1,000 banking transactions can be easily completed online, a striking number compared to the past, when these transactions amounted to only a few dozen.
