The Greek islands offer an irresistible combination of white-sand beaches, mountain scenery, and ancient history. If warm weather is important to you, summer is indisputably the best time to visit, when you’ll most likely have pleasant temperatures for the beach. However, the islands can get busy in summer—fall and spring are better bets when it comes to avoiding crowds.
Just south of Athens, in the Saronic Gulf, this group of half-a-dozen or so islands makes for an easy getaway. No two are the same, and which to visit depends on your preference. Match culture with a lively party scene on Spetses, get away from it all on tiny Agistri, and everything in between with this guide.
Located southwest of Athens, the Peloponnese peninsula is home to some of Greece’s most historic spots. Although summer is the busiest season, crowd levels won’t be on par with Athens or the popular Greek islands, so you can relax and soak in the pleasant weather and attractions year-round. The weather in the Peloponnese is similar to the Greek capital; expect hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters, with a temperate spring and fall. Read on to learn more about the best times to visit.
Most travelers will find that 9 to 12 days is perfect for a well-paced Greece trip with stops in Athens, Naxos, Santorini, and Mykonos. Travelers with less time can hit the route's highlights in 7 or 8 days, which makes for a fast-paced journey. Travelers with more time can enjoy extra sights and activities at each stop, or explore more of the country—some of our favorite itinerary extensions include Chania, Ios, or Nafpaktos.
