When to go
In winter, it is cool in Greece and it often rains, but starting from March it gets noticeably warmer, drizzles less and less, and more and more tourists come here with excursion and pilgrimage tours. From April to May is an even more attractive time for lovers of the history and art of the Hellenes: it is getting warmer, besides, the flowering period is coming and everywhere is very beautiful. The sea warms up to a comfortable temperature by mid-May, and by July only the most persistent lovers of heat come to the Greek beaches: + 35 ° C is difficult to withstand, especially if there is no rain - and they almost do not happen in July and August. The velvet season in Greece is June, September and October. Pilgrimage tours are usually offered in autumn and winter.

Acropolises, pantheons, temples, basilicas, monasteries, churches and other monuments of the rich history of the region can be seen during excursion tours of Greece. The abundance of attractions allows you to combine them according to interests: for example, you can pay special attention to Alexander the Great, exploring the places where the great commander visited: Delphi, Loutraki, Argolis, Athens.
