Visitors to Greece reached at least 22 million last year

Bank of Greece figures confirmed on Tuesday that local tourism’s record year 2014 brought 22 million visitors and 13.44 billion euros in travel receipts.

This represents a 23 percent increase in tourists and a 10.6 percent rise in revenues from 2013.

When cruise passengers are factored into the data to be published soon, the number of visitors will rise even higher.
