LONDON — Andreas Patiniotis can't help sounding cheerful as Greece once again welcomes tourists back to the country.
"I'm very happy," said the owner of four hotels in one of Greece's most iconic holiday destinations, Santorini.
And that feeling is spreading across this entire sunny nation, with the economy relying heavily on international visitors.
In 2020, Greece's gross domestic product sank more than 8% and a large part of that was due to the lack of tourists.
