Best Time to Visit

June, July and August are the most popular times to visit Greece, but with guaranteed sunshine comes hordes of tourists. If you would prefer fewer tourists or slightly cooler temperatures then April, May and September are also great times to visit.
December, February and March are less reliable times to visit Greece in terms of weather; some days can be crystal clear and warm, whereas others can be cold and miserable. It all depends on where in Greece you are planning to travel, so ensure you do plenty of research before booking.


What to See and Do

There is so much which can be added to a Greek itinerary that you might just have to make several trips to tick it all off, but here are some of our favourites;

  • The stunning white and blue buildings in Santorini have become synonymous with Greece, so watching the sun set over the island is a must for any traveller.
  • If you’re looking for an active holiday, then why not challenge yourself to climb Mount Olympus in search of the ancient Gods?
  • No trip to Greece would be complete without visiting the Acropolis in Athens – the birthplace of civilisation
  • The island of Corfu has a beautiful ‘old town’, complete with a fort, cricket pitch, museums, shops and Venetian architecture.
  • Visit an authentic tavern and indulge in some plate smashing.


What to Eat and Drink

The food in Greece is simply delicious from authentic moussaka to fresh seafood. However, the real speciality is the meze, a selection of smaller dishes including fresh pitta bread, tzatziki (yoghurt and cucumber dip), saganaki (fried cheese), kleftiko (slow-cooked lamb), and souvlaki (meat kebabs).
