Greece Gets Tourists – level 2

13-04-2020 07:00

Greece is a popular tourist destination. Last year, the country got more than $19 billion dollars from tourism; however, the coronavirus changed everything.

Many countries introduce travel restrictions, which affected airlines, people, and places that depend on tourism.

Greece found a way to stay attractive for tourists. The country launched a website with videos and content from Greek history, culture, or celebrities. The website also cooperates with Google, and it offers free training on digital marketing skills.

The Greek Tourism Ministry thinks that virtual tourism can attract tourists, and they can visit the country when travel restrictions end.

Difficult words: restriction (an official rule that limits what people can do), launch (to start an activity or project), virtual (something that is not real but that exists online).
