Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If highly visible goods become more expensive it would not be unreasonable for tourists to take it as a signal that the destination has become more expensive. This could send the tourists to - perceived or actual - cheaper locations.

For that matter the fact that 1 drachma was so much smaller then 1 euro might have created an impression of cheapness. When exchanging money, you used to get lots of drachmas.
