The official language is Greek (Ellenika). Understanding a little about the Greek alphabet (both upper and lower case) and the equivalent Roman characters will help with identifying street names and road signs. The more important signs on main roads and in tourist areas are often shown in both Greek and Latin scripts, but elsewhere will generally just be in Greek.
