Your opinion on best time to visit Greece

Jump to last reply

I realise that this is planning well in advance but we need to fit into school holiday times for our travels. I also know that there are no guarantees as to weather. Nonetheless I am interested in opinions as to the best month to travel to Greece (predominantly the north): April; July; or September.

Best in terms of weather, crowds, transport availability, etc.

We like easy hiking, beaches and sightseeing but will obviously adapt according to the season. On holidays, we tend to spend much more time outdoors than in. We like it to be warm but don't especially like it to be too hot if we are active. I've checked wunderground.com and it appears that July would be the hottest of these three months. I have spent months in Greece before but never at these times and not recently. I remember how beautiful the spring flowers were and would love to see them again.

Your thoughts please?
