Choose the best time to go to Greece and make all your wishes come true!

Bathed in a Mediterranean climate in the south and a continental climate in the north, Greece is a year-round destination. Each season has its own special atmosphere. Discover each of their advantages to find out when to go to Greece for a stay that suits you.

ENJOY ALL THE ADVANTAGES OF GREECE IN SUMMER

When you're preparing for your holidays and wondering when to go to Greece, summer is on everyone's mind. You can enjoy the country's sublime beaches and numerous archaeological sites in the hot and dry climate with mild air and water temperatures.

The beaches of the island of Eubée are perfect for your summer stay. Head towards Limni, a small coastal village full of charm. After a stroll through its winding alleys, sit down at one of its taverns before enjoying a siesta on the beach and a dip in the sea. Take advantage of a boat trip to Lichadonisia, a string of islands surrounded by turquoise waters, where you can enjoy swimming in sumptuous landscapes.

Get your fill of culture at incredible historical sites like the theatre of Dionysus, the temple of Apollo Daphnephoros in Eretria or the Monastery of Panagia Spiliotissa perched on the heights of the Vikos Gorge.

Did you know?

From spring until the end of summer, the Meltem, a wind from the north, brings welcome fresh air from the Aegean Sea over Greece, where temperatures can easily exceed 30°C.

WHEN TO VISIT GREECE FOR A STAY AWAY FROM THE CROWDS?

Its beautiful landscapes and magnificent heritage make Greece a popular summer destination. If you prefer a quiet stay rather than the lively tourist season, plan your visit for spring or autumn.

The warm sun still makes it possible to enjoy beach walks and swimming, strolling in picturesque villages and hikes through nature. Take the time to appreciate the different pleasures Greece has to offer.

To recharge your batteries in the heart of nature, head for Mount Ochi, south of the island of Evia where rivers meander through the green forest. When you arrive at the summit you will discover an unhindered view of the Karystos Bay.

When you reach the village and its small fishing port at the edge of the Aegean Sea you will be welcomed by the numerous cafés and restaurants of the Plateia Amalias for a relaxing evening on the seafront**.

GREECE'S WINTER SURPRISES

While winter in the north of the country can be cold, temperatures rise as you head south. It’s not swimming weather, but the sunshine still offers a wonderful retreat. Greece will then reveal many surprises.

Mount Parnassus is famous for the Delphic Ruins, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After discovering this magnificent monument, complete your cultural tour with the majestic amphitheatre and temple of Apollo.

For a warmer climate, head to the northwest of the island of Evia. The village of Loutra Edipsos is home to a hot spring whose virtues have been extolled since ancient times. Visit any of the hydrotherapy centres to relax in next to the Aegean Sea.

Loutra Édipsos: even mythology talks about it!

According to mythology, the baths of Loutra Edipsos were created by Hephaestus at the request of his sister, Athena. She wanted Hercules to have a place to rest after each of his works. But the hero was not the only one to benefit from these healing waters. Emperors Hadrian and Constantine and, more recently, Maria Callas and Greta Gabo, also bathed there.
