Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £0.9118 GBP
1 €UR = $1.1205 USD
£1 GBP = 1.0967 €UR
$1 USD = 0.8925 €UR

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Vatican returns Parthenon sculptures to Greece

The Vatican has returned three fragments of the Parthenon sculptures to Greece in a move that has been described as a "gesture of friendship".

The decision to return the 2,500-year-old marbles was announced by Pope Francis last year.

One is a chunk of a horses head, the other a bearded man and the third a head of a boy.

Greece hopes the move will spur other overseas institutions that hold Parthenon sculptures to return them.

About 50% of the Parthenon's original sculptures have survived and almost half of them are in the British Museum.

Is there a serial killer in your home? Or is your cat just an extrovert?

The “feline five” personality traits, according to earlier researchers, are neuroticism (insecure, shy and anxious), dominance (bullying and aggressive to other cats), impulsiveness (erratic and reckless behaviour), agreeableness (gentle and friendly towards humans) and extroversion.
