Peak season

Travellers booking cheap flights to Greece will be enchanted by the rich history, architecture, landscape and people of this ancient nation. Then there’s the idyllic weather – Greece enjoys a Mediterranean climate with clear, sunny skies for over two thirds of the year. The mainland has more extreme temperatures than the islands which are dotted around the shimmering waters of the Aegean sea, Ionian sea, Mediterranean sea and the Sea of Crete. The most famous of these are the Cyclades Islands which include the popular tourist hot spots of Mykonos, Ios and Santorini. Athens, situated on the mainland, is the capital of Greece, and a treasure trove of ancient and modern attractions, such as the 2,000 year old Parthenon and the New Acropolis Museum. In general, summer is peak season when most travellers arrive on flights to Greece, particularly July and August, when the sun worshippers flock to the Greek Island beaches and tour groups are out in force in Athens, Delphi and Olympia. Christmas and Easter are also busy times, so be sure to book flight tickets and accommodation well in advance.

Off season

Avoid Athens in August, temperatures can often reach into the 40Cs, it will be crowded and you’ll be paying high season prices.
