When and where to go
Due to its’ southernly location, Greece stays hotter than most European countries for a large portion of the year. We really suggest travelling between April/May and October for peak weather season as some hotels, restaurants and shops will close during the quieter months.
Temperatures really differ depending on the time of year and area you are in, but generally between May and October temperatures would be around between 20 and 35.
