Greece Offers Tourist Charms Year-Round


Whether you like the islands or the mainland, a picturesque village or the big city, the sea or the mountain beauties, visiting Greece is a wonderful experience praised by many tourists, itinerary and travel agencies around the world. The hospitality of people and the abundant natural beauties offered by the Mediterranean country will leave every taste satisfied no matter when the traveling may take place. So do not worry if you cannot travel to Greece during the peak season because hotels are overbooked and prices may rise. The rest of the year offers up wonderful traffic-free vacations that will certainly leave you with the best impression.

The peak season of summer months July and August attracts many tourists from around the world, and especially Europe, Russia, the USA and Australia. The warm sunny weather usually reaching 38 degrees Celsius, (100 degrees Fahrenheit) the crystal clear beaches of the Greek coasts and islands and the vibrant nightlife are a must for many who chose to come to Greece this particular time of the year.

Cruises in the Ionian and the Aegean Seas are an absolute delight, while islands such as Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu and Crete top the list of preferred places for incoming and domestic visitors. There are hundreds of islands to chose from, hundreds of beautiful small villages and towns to spend your time exploring the sites and culture, while you can always pick a more mountainous area that will give you a bit of a breeze during these two hot and low-humidity months.

From September and on things change for good. The high season comes to an end and the fall temperatures are much more pleasant than during summer. Some shops, restaurants and taverns may shut down, but the prices drop considerably as well, which is very attracting to those who cannot afford expensive vacations.

The fall is usually preferred by students, couples and the elderly for their vacation trips. There are chances of showers or a little rain that could deter you from visting the archaeological sites or take a walk through the city, but nonetheless you have the chance of enjoying your time with less traffic and noise. If the weather is good, do not miss the chance of going for a swim; the waters are still warm and there are many people swiming in Greece all year long.

The months from November to March are what is called the low season with most tourist businesses shutting down around Greece. The weather is unsteady and rain or even snow could fall at any time. On the other hand, this is the best time for winter sports enthusiasts and families with children, who can visit one of the numerous ski centres around the Greek mainland and enjoy their time there in reasonable prices. Although it seems like a rather dead time of the year, various cultural events make up for the unpredictable weather while spring is about to commence.

From March to June Greece has been described by many as one of the most beautiful places on earth. Springtime in the country is a heaven to they eye, with flowers and trees blooming and the temperature rising steadily as the days grow longer. Heavy rains are always part of the Greek spring, but the warm sunny weather takes gradually over at the end of April.

The Greek Easter celebrated during April or May is a wonderful experience to live, while you can get travel deals and packages in low prices. Perhaps this is the best time to go to Greece and simultaneously enjoy all the beauties it has to offer.
