Abstract

The paper examines the evolution and structural characteristics of high-class tourism in Greece. Furthermore, it is an attempt to find out the typical profile of the tourist that prefers this country as a tourist destination. Using official monthly data for the period 1999-2002, parametric and non-parametric statistical tests are applied. Analysis has shown that, despite the considerable increase of high-class tourism, Greece is still a middle and low-class summer seaside tourist destination, attracting tourists rather from Europe than from Northern America or Asia. Due to income increases and their preference for short but qualitative holidays, Greek tourists have reinforced high-class tourism.
