Best Time To Visit Athens

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

With sharing proximity to sea, Athens often experiences higher temperature and humidity than other Greek cities. Owing to that, the best time to visit Athens is during the bloom season from March to May and then from September to November. This is when Athens temperature is the mildest and most comfortable for sightseeing, swimming and sunbathing.

Let’s take a look at the below month-wise segregation to decide on what is the best time of the year to visit Athens.

March - May (8°C to 25°C)

With pleasant weather and accommodations and flights available at affordable rates, this period can be called the best time to travel Athens. As one hops on to a tour of Athens, it is advised to carry along a light jacket to protect oneself from spring winds, as Athens is located somewhere 10 miles off the coast of Greece.

June - August (19°C to 32°C)

Replete with high temperature, this time of the year urges everyone including locals and shopkeepers to spend a sojourn along beaches. Thus, a tourist can have a tough time while travelling to Athens from June to August. And, the summer temperature is also quite hard to deal with.

Though, one can get to observe many festivals, like: Rockwave Festival, Athens and Epidaurus Festival, and more.

September - November (11°C to 28°C)

Pack a light jacket, and hop on a tour to Athens during this period of the year. With pleasant weather and great deals on hotel accommodations, this is the best time to experience the surroundings of Athens. Enjoy nightlife, shop souvenirs and do much more.

And, one can also attend Athens International Film Festival held in between September and October.  

December - February (5°C to 14°C)

However, if one is planning to travel Athens in December, then carrying an umbrella is highly recommended. Though, it is the wettest month of the year, with great deals on hotel rooms, a visit to Athens can be a great experience provided one likes winters.

During the months of January and February, one can get to observe Athens Carnival here.

Climate in Athens

Summer Season in Athens

Summers in Athens is hot and sunny. Athens temperature in March and April are comparatively much milder. The temperature in Athens in May to is quite fine, sneaking around 30°C-32°C. From June, the heat starts to rise and stays for at least three long months till it starts to cool down in September. Athens weather in August and July are the driest, even with the vicinity to the sea. The average summer temperature in Athens is around 35°C in most places, but the urban centers can have it higher than the suburbs because of man-made heat. In fact, Athens, Greece holds the record for having the highest temperature ever recorded in Europe, at 48°C, back in 1977.

Monsoon Season in Athens

As mentioned earlier, the monsoon and winter seasons kind of overlap in the weather of Athens, Greece. Mediterranean climate by nature has wet winters. But Athens does not receive as much rainfall as its neighbors because of the rain shadow phenomenon by the Pindus Mountains. But still, average rainfall goes as high as 72.3 mm in November and 72.7 mm in December.

The weather conditions in Athens have both its benefits and drawbacks. On the one hand, the summers are the best time for sightseeing and other activities. But the crowds will be thicker and thus there will be more foot-fall at the points of interests, making it difficult to enjoy calmly. Prices of flights and accommodations will also be higher since it is the peak season. On the other hand, trips during the months from November to February will be often interspersed by rains. The tourists will have to be ready with raincoats or umbrellas and always be cautious of the rain. The beach will also not be the same without the sun. Everything taken into consideration, springs, and autumns are the best time to pay a visit to the Greek capital. The prices are lower than in mid-summer, and the crowds are thinner as well. However, if one really wants to visit at other times or is compelled to for prior reservations, there is no need to worry. Irrespective of the season, Athens is always fun and easy to wander around and visit the places of interest.

Winter Season in Athens

Athens does not really enjoy the season of winter. The months of November to February have much lesser temperature than June-July, but also have much higher humidity and precipitation. Athens in winter is rainy. November to February are the months when it showers in Athens, though not as heavily as the rest of Greece. The temperature goes down to 22°C on an average, which is a great development from the balmy heat of the summer. Athens weather in December is mostly cool, with frequent rainfall and relatively higher humidity.

    Hinita

    Hinita's 4 days trip to Athens

    The trip was most enjoyable thanks to the services provided by our travel agent Shubham of this tour company. Our agent Shubham was very attentive to our wishes and interests, and arranged a schedule to meet our needs. He was very patient, and made adjustments to our schedule as required. During the trip, he provided excellent coordination and support. This included helping with tracking a checked bag which did not make it with us on a flight connection between Madrid and Porto. All of the private drivers and guides was very professional, punctual and considerate of our interests, needs and comfort. We cannot overstate how pleased we were with all of the services provided. We feel like our amazing family trip to Spain (Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba) and Portugal (Porto, Tomar, Sintra, Lisbon) actually began when we started working with our travel agent six months prior to our departure date. He consistently followed up with us to understand our interests, priorities, likes and dislikes, in order to create a wonderful itinerary that satisfied our entire family. Even our last minute request to add a stopover in Tomar on our way from Porto to Lisbon was handled expeditiously. The private guides that took us around in all of the cities we visited were top-notch, hotels selected were comfortable and conveniently located near the city center, drivers were on-time and friendly… Our travel agent Shubham was also very responsive and helpful in giving us advice during our trip, especially when we encountered some unexpected problems such as a lost luggage during airport transfer.

    Jan's 7 days trip to Athens

    This travel company was great to work with and the trip planner Shubham was very helpful, making suggestions and fitting the activities to the kind of trip we wanted—some structure without being scheduled every minute. The tour guides in Prague, Austria & Vienna, and Budapest were excellent, with a great command of information and history. It was particularly interesting to hear about their experiences before and after the Iron curtain. Our guide in Prague was amazing . Shubham and prashant were great in there services . One suggestion I’d make in Budapest—-it’s really too big to do a walking tour and see much in half a day. It would be better to use a driver for this half day tour to save time. We wound up only seeing Buda due to walking. The hotels provided by shubham were all very nice with great breakfast buffets—appealing to many cultures, especially the hotel in Vienna. All the drivers were prompt and friendly. We loved it and are already planning the next trip from Hubholiday !

    Prajna's 7 days trip to Athens

    Thanks to TravelTriangle for making our honeymoon trip to Italy one of the best trips of our life. The entire trip was planned flawlessly. The cab was waiting for us when we reached the airport and all the bookings were made in advance. Not just that the trip was so efficiently planned that we could tick all the activities we had planned. It was so well organised taking into consideration the arrival, departure of the trains and giving us enough spare time to explore the cities on our own. I sincerely thank TravelTriangle for making this trip one of the most memorable trips of our life

    This is my 3rd family trip with Duniya Safari. They were extremely helpful in customizing our trip to our requirements. It was the trip of a lifetime and we cherish every moment of it. Our trip was really well planned in terms of accommodation, commutation, sightseeing and a combination of best of things. Ms. Mayuri handled everything exceptionally and was available 24*7 for any query that we had during our trip. The best part of this experience is the daily updates that we received every morning. We highly recommend Duniya Safari for your next trip.

    Prashant's 7 days trip to Athens

    It was a wonderful, memorable trip. The support and services we received from our Shubham . Our agent shubham was incredibly patient, answering all our questions with grace and interest. He and his partner prashant are extremely knowledgeable about travel to Turkey. We were so impressed with the services on the ground. We believe they assigned their best guides to us, since each of them went out of their way to please us. Turkey is a multi-faceted country with a rich history, and we all came away knowing so much more about it than we imagined. All of the services were well coordinated, including the four intra-Turkey flights we took. All transitions went as smoothly as possible. All in all, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone who was interested in traveling to Turkey! Thank you again shubham sagar and prashant for such a great trip .

    Sonia's 4 days trip to Athens

    This was our first trip to Europe planned by shubham sir and Pooja mam . Shubham was there with us from starting of preparing of itinerary till end of our trip . I decided to take an extended (7 week) vacation through Europe, visiting 4 countries and 13 cities, with various friends coming and going throughout my travels. The trip itself was complex, with the added intricacy of the various desires, personalities, budgets, and availabilities of my traveling companions. Despite the unique nature of my trip, the travel agency managed to plan an outstanding, memorable, and unique vacation for all of us. As a young woman partaking in a multi-city trip (some parts solo), I wanted the vacation to be stress free and safe. The representative Shubham sagar I worked with, planned an itinerary that required zero worry, planning, or stress on my end. Throughout my travels, I knew with confidence that I wouldn't need to worry about transportation or navigating a foreign city on my own. Most importantly my travel representative provided me with a local contact in each city who was simply a phone call away, available whenever myself or a traveling companion needed an issue resolved promptly. Furthermore, because of Shubham vast experience, I was able to visit cities I otherwise would not have while staying in beautiful, boutique hotels. Most impressive, however, was the agency's ability to plan a trip for all of my traveling companions with such varied budgets and interests. Each friend who participated in this trip was more than pleased with their segment of the vacation-- many recommending the agency to other friends of their own soon afterwards. Because of the hassle-free nature of the trip on the part of this agency, my friends and I were able to relax and truly enjoy the experience of being in each unique city.

    Thank you Rohit Thakur for making the Europe trip a wonderful experience for us. We had absolutely great time and the hotels were bliss to stay at. The hotels were in the city center and were very easy to commute around. Despite the time difference, you helped us with all the queries and there were no hiccups throughout our trip. We are sure will come back to travel triangle and take your help in the future to book our trips. A big thanks to you once again. wishing you the best. Cheers, Suganya Roshinth

    It was our first time with hubholiday.com(travel triangle) and I must say I was not disappointed, you were in touch with us at every moment which made us more confident. The vouchers were given on time in spite of a tight schedule and also Imtiyaaz upgraded the many things like hotels, trains, tours, etc from his own. The hotels were good and very near to the stations which were commendable. Our overall experience was great and will definitely recommend hubholiday.com to my friends and relatives and for my future trips. Best regards, Kaushal Sawant.
