When To Go

My favourite time in Greece is spring. The countryside is green after the winter rain, and the countryside is a mass of flowers. By comparison, the countryside in autumn is brown and barren after the summer sun.

A place that is quiet in March will be buzzing with activity in August (and probably from mid May to mid September). The nearer to high season you travel, the more tourist-oriented facilities you will find open. And more tourists to share them with.

If you are travelling to Greece for the first time, I would recommend mid-season. If you become a connoisseur, you may later choose to travel in low season!
