The currency in Greece is the Euro. Today, 1 Euro is valued at 1.35933 USD, but that number changes with world economic changes.

There are also many other foods, like Greek salad, octopus, pita, and manstra (a type of pasta that is cut like large grains of rice). Because Greece has a Mediterranean climate, many of its common foods contain greens and are very fresh.
