Tourism Law

Tourism is one of the main economic sectors in Greece (28 million tourists in 2022). Tourism infrastructure has greatly developed and offers a wide variety of tourist facilities while tourism is the fastest growing industry in Greece.
Public authorities, at the local, regional and national level, have a prominent role and responsibility in the establishment of conditions favourable to sustainable development in tourism. There are opportunities in tourism for the elderly (silver economy) or eco-tourism, upgrading the tourism value chains aiming for higher market segments, and diversify tourism activities into becoming less dependent on seasonal tourism.

Tourism is subjected not only to specific tourism regulations but also to regulations primarily designed for other areas such as the environment, consumer protection, the preservation of cultural and historical heritage. There is a large variety of tourism regulations within the different competency levels of administration.
