When is the best time to visit Greece?
The tourist season in Greece starts in April and usually lasts up to October, reaching its peak in July – August. Therefore, if you want a relaxing vacation while enjoying more privacy, we recommend you should plan your trip between April and June, when it is also much easier to find a nice place to stay, for an acceptable budget.
In the peak of the season, between mid-July to late August, the majority of people usually prefer going to the beautiful Greek islands. Still, there are also some more isolated islands with a calm atmosphere, for those who prefer enjoying their trip in comfort and tranquility.
Visiting Greece throughout the winter
For those who love travelling during the winter, beautiful Greece definitely has a lot to offer! It is one of the most sought-after winter tourism and ski destinations. The city of Athens is very enjoyable outside the tourist season, especially when the tourist attractions are not full of visitors, and you can enjoy the beautiful landmarks without the never ending crowds of tourists.
The most famous skiing places in Greece are in Arachova and Kalavrita. While you’re there, you should take a moment and enjoy the traditional winter food that will make you fall in love with this season!
Other attractions during the winter include enjoying the warm and cozy thermal lakes such as the Athens Riviera or the Lake Vouliagmeni, or going to Christmas-inspired theme parks such as the famous Santa Claus village – Oneiroupoli. This is a magnificent park with over 20,000 square meters of various activities for both children and parents.
Whatever the nature of your planned trip to Greece, you will never feel disappointed. Whether you’re looking for beaches or mountains, relaxing or partying, be it in winter or summer, your trip to Greece will definitely be your best choice for an unforgettable holiday.
