Oct vs Nov for Greece

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to get a sense of the qualitative differences between traveling to mainland Greece in early October versus early November. I've looked into the weather reports and sunset times and museum closing times, so I know the basic facts. I'm hoping to hear more subjective opinions.

My basic route will be:

3 days - Athens
3 days - Nafplion
4-6 days - other parts of the Peloponesse
2 days - Delphi
1-2 days - Athens

My main interests are in exploring the archaeological sites & wandering in the cities and small towns, followed by food and museums, and - trailing far behind - nightlife.

If I postpone the trip until November I'll be able to take a few more days & include Meteora and Thessaloniki. I'll also have an extra day to travel this spring- which is why I need to make a decision relatively soon.

Any information or opinions would help!
