Best time to visit the Greek Islands

Jump to last reply

I want to avoid the high prices and tourist crowds of high season, but I don't want to end up seeing most shops and restaurants not open for business. So, should I visit the Greek Isles at the end of May, or early June? Is there an "unofficial" date for the opening of the summer tourist season that I should watch out for? Thanks.
