Weather in Greece
On summer days, Athens can reach 42ºC. Winters are mild in the south and colder in the north. The rainy season lasts from November to March.
You might be used to hearing about the notorious Greek heat wave on the news. Well, it is true that sometimes temperatures can be high, but it’s often exaggerated. Athens, due to its location and geographical configuration, can become hot at specific times of summer and only occasionally.
Nowhere else in Greece does the heat become excessive. The main tourist places are next to the sea and at night it refreshes considerably, due to the sea breeze, a thermal inversion caused by the difference of temperatures between the surface of the land and the sea.
During the day in these places it is hot making it ideal to enjoy the sea and the beach.
