Greece is the place that offers everything! You can explore, taste and feel every part of the nature with a range of different landscapes such as wonderful islands, snow-covered mountains and magnificent castle-cities.

Arahova and Kalavrita are two popular mountain ski resorts where you can have the time of your life! Additionally, the country’s cultural heritage is present in its globally known archaeological sites such the Archaeological Site of Delphi, but you may encounter signs of the ancient Greece almost anywhere, besides Athens of course.

Greece is globally known for its unique islands.

The Greek people are friendly and hospitable and they love the nightlife, so you will enjoy every second of your stay in Greece, no doubt about that. As for the Greek cuisine, it is something you should definitely taste! Once you visit this wonderful Mediterranean country, you will want to get there again and again.

Best Time To Visit Greece

Greece has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. However, over the last years, you may encounter snowfall in spring or heavy rainfalls in summer. It is a fact that the climate has changed globally, so the best time to visit Greece really depends on where in the country you choose to stay.

For instance, the best time to visit Athens is from March to May and from October and December. The weather is pleasantly warm and you can enjoy outdoor activities in a less crowded city. Of course, if you want to visit the islands, the best time is from June to September, when the heat is stiff and the temperature normally exceeds 40 Celsius. November to March is the rainy season, so you’d better avoid it. Also, fall and spring are great for the lovers of mountain bike and hiking, Greece has a wonderful countryside like Pelion or Olympus Mountain, where you can hike and enjoy lots of outdoor activities without burning your skin.
