When to go to Greece
Le climatic conditions are one of the factors that most affect when you are preparing to organize a holiday. Here we will try to provide useful information on when to go to Greece.
A very popular destination for its beautiful islands and seaside resorts, Greece is ideal since May, the month when temperatures around 24 degrees are recorded, especially in the Dodecanese islands; while September can reserve days of intense heat, especially in the Cyclades islands. June, July and August, are the hottest months, with average temperatures of 30 degrees in the insular part, and peaks above the 35 degrees in Athens: just the Capital, thanks to the position, the smog and the mass cementification of the last decades boasts, in summer, one of the highest temperatures in all of Europe!
Winters are not rigid: January, usually, reserves a few more days of rainfall. Last mention concerns the Meltémi. Do not go insane, especially in summer, when the heat, in the highlands in the Aegean, is angry.
Through our κ index, we provide an evaluation for every single month. In this way, you can evaluate the best time when going to Greece.
July, in our opinion, is the best month. Ideal temperatures for spending your holidays between sea, beach and sun. In the early morning, or late in the afternoon, you can dedicate yourself to visit the sights, monuments and attractions of the places. Compared to August, prices are lower and, above all, you will find less chaos.
In general, the winter months are the less attractive for tourists. We do not recommend December and January.
