Best Time to Travel to Greece Weather Wise
The summer season in Greece can reach high average temperatures of over 30°C, with southern islands
such as Karpathos usually experiencing the hottest weather.
Heat waves in the summer can reach as hot as 40°C, which can be stifling and uncomfortable if you
want to walk around and see tourist attractions.
The average temperature stays above 20°C throughout the months of May to September, so if you prefer
to visit Greece when there are fewer crowds outside of high season, visiting Greece in May, June and
September will usually still be a pleasantly warm temperature.
There is an average of 4 days of rain in May, 1 day of rain in June, July and August and
3 days in September.
Winter months can be quite cold, with minimum temperatures reaching around 5°C. Some parts of Greece
will experience outbreaks of cold air and snowfall often occurs in the northern areas of Greece.
