Hi

It's always best to come prepared as the mosquitoes can be a real nuisance, especially on very warm and humid evenings. In the UK, we can buy special sprays with a slight lemon fragrance which really seem to deter the mosquitoes from biting but it's not 100% effective as it's almost impossible to spray every part of your exposed skin.

As for nightime, buy a couple of the plug-in insecticide type deterrents - these "burn" a small pyrethrum strip which kills mosquitoes and should, at least in theory, stop you getting bitten at night. You cab buy these cheaply anywhere in Greece and the boxes of refill strips are very cheap, just a couple of euros for 20 or 24 strips.
