When is the best time to visit Greece?

Generally speaking, spring (April to June) and early autumn (September and October) are the best times to visit Greece. Temperatures are warm but not stifling, and you’ll find that destinations are open but still relatively quiet. The period from November to February tends to be colder, but city attractions remain open and are pleasantly quiet. Summer brings steamy, hot weather and hordes of visitors at the main sights and on the islands.

In order to avoid the heat and crowds, I suggest visiting in the spring (April to June) or fall (September and October). I think April and September are the two best months — the weather is fantastic, but you get a better travel experience away from the cruise-ship crowds of July and August.

The final two months of the year bring cooler temperatures to Greece. Island destinations close down for the winter, while historical sites across the mainland remain quietly open.
