Best Time to Visit Greece

The best time to visit Greece is between May and July and September to October. August is often the busiest and hottest month of the year in Greece.

You will have the best time visiting the Greek islands between June and September due to the warm summer temperatures and vibrant lifestyles that take place during these months. Outside of the summer months, hotels and restaurants on the islands often close down for the shoulder and winter seasons.

Modes of Transportation in Greece

If traveling the mainland, the best way to see Greece in 10 days is by car. The train services and public transportation systems are irregular and not yet held to a consistent and quick standard that can transfer you across the country with ease. Driving in Greece is easy as the roads are paved, the highways are well-marked, and the network of roads makes even the most remote corner of mainland Greece reachable.

What to Consider When Traveling Through Greece

Travel considerations during your Greece vacation include safety, ease of logistics, and accessibility. The following information offers our recommendations on what to consider:

Is Greece Safe for Travel?

Greece is very safe. During your Greece tour, you will find the people and the country welcoming and eager to share their culture. As anywhere, pickpocketing can be a concern, especially in larger tourist destinations like Athens. Healthwise, there are no concerns regarding the general safety of eating and drinking throughout Greece.

Which airports should I be looking at?

For most travelers, the most convenient airport is Athens. The second most accessible airport to fly in or out of in Greece is Crete’s Heraklion Airport (HER). The top active airports in Greece are:

  • Athens (ATH)
  • Heraklion (HER)
  • Thessaloniki (SKG)
