Best time to visit Greece
At any moment, you can always find a plethora of Greece tour packages for couples. So, the best time to visit
the country really depends on the kind of experiences you wish to enjoy together. There are two main seasons — a hot, dry summer and cool, wet winter. A mild transitional spring and autumn occur too, often providing the ideal climes and conditions for a wonderful yet affordable Greece honeymoon.
If a beach vacation or Greek island-hopping is what you and your love would enjoy the most, the sunny summers are the time for your Greece honeymoon. Water sports, diving, swimming, sunbathing and hiking — this is the best time for it all.

Especially the walking tours that you can take on without worrying about the blistering heat!
