Greece Travel Guide

Under the glow of the Mediterranean sun, Greece sparkles like a mirage in a seemingly endless sea. It’s a land of history and impressive sights, where sublime beaches share the spotlight with magnificent ruins, and charming architecture decorates the varied landscape as the rich colours of sunset paint the skies. Greece isn’t a trick of the light, but its beauty is surely divine.

  1. Peak Season

    June to August

    Greece’s high summer season, from late June through August, ushers in not just the inflated rates and the sizzling heat, but also the party folks who descend upon the islands in tremendous numbers. Easter week is also a busy time, but for local traffic as many take to the countryside to celebrate. It might be best to save your visit until September/October when the crowds have left, or in the late spring when the temperatures are cooler and the crowd is thinner. Early June or September are your best bets when local establishments are open for business. 

  2. Low Season

    November to March

    The low seasons of spring and autumn see Greece at its finest. Wildflowers cover the landscapes in the spring as do the golden fall foliage in the autumn. These seasons seem like the best times for unrivalled explorations. That is if you’re willing to compromise. During this time, most of Greece’s businesses that cater to tourists are closed. Tour operators, boats, restaurants, shops and attractions shut down in October and don’t open until June, which gives you limited options. If that’s something you can live with and you prefer to witness the islands in a more authentic light, it’s the way to go. Meticulous planning, however, is necessary.
