Tourist arrivals to Greece drop 5.5% in 2012
The number of international visits to Greece fell 5.5% last year, as political turmoil during elections in June and the economic crisis in Europe affected the country’s tourism industry. A total of 15.5 million non-resident visitors arrived in Greece in 2012, according to a statement from the Athens-based Hellenic Statistical Authority. European visitors, 89.3% of the total, also dropped 5.5% to 13.9 million from 14.7 million last year.
