Best time to visit
The weather in Greece is characterized by great temperatures, sunny days and very little rainfall. Greece is a topographically diverse country and the weather in many locations of the country varies considerably, otherwise, it is mostly influenced by the Mediterranean climate. An ideal choice for nicer weather and lower crowds is spring and early summer or autumn: mid-Apr to mid-June or Sept to mid-Oct. Choosing this time of the year you will avoid soaring temperatures (heat may reach +40°C) and crowds of foreigners and locals. The high season in Greek islands (late June to early September) brings better service options but higher prices. Best months for low-budget holidays are: March, April, May, October, and November. Santorini or Crete is a great choice for winter: restaurants and bars are open and the weather is nice enough, therefore successful holidays in Greece are guaranteed!
