LONDON, July 7 (Reuters) - European shares steadied on Tuesday, recouping some of the previous session's decline, before a euro zone summit on the Greek debt crisis later in the day.

The euro zone Euro STOXX 50 rose 0.3 percent after falling 2.2 percent on Monday, once Greek voters rejected conditions for a new bailout in a referendum on Sunday.
