Trip Report My Trip to Athens, Greece in December 2015

Jump to last reply

A lot of people think about swimming in the warm sea when they plan their holidays in Greece. I have recently discovered that you can enjoy Greece in winter as well. I had my vacation in December 2015 that I have spent in Athens. Visiting Athens during winter months has a number of benefits:

- Athens climate is very mild. During my stay the temperatures reached 77 degrees Fahrenheit (about 25 degrees Celsius). The sun was shining and people enjoyed sitting at the numerous open verandahs.

- It's much better to explore the city's attractions when its 77 degrees in winter vs 110 degrees in summer. Climbing to Acropolis, Mount Lycabettus or just browsing the streets is much more comfortable.

- During the sunny days of December I went to one of the famous coastal towns near Athens to enjoy local seafood and even get some tan at one of the super cool beaches. The town is called Vouliagmeni and it's one of the most upscale sea side neighborhoods in Greece and Europe. I had a nice lunch at one of the restaurants there and went to Astir beach where people were sun bathing and playing beach volley ball!

- It was easy and non-expensive to get around because I used public transport. Athens has one of the most modern and cleanest subway systems I have every used in my life. The buses are pretty good too. Getting from the center of Athens to Vouliagmeni or Varkiza was easy and took less than one hour.
