The variety of options is enormous, for instance, the warm and sunny summers, perfect for beach lovers and vibrant Greek #island experiences, or the mild winters offer quiet exploration of historical sites and cultural festivities for those who love history and culture. The spring brings a palette of colors as flowers bloom, while autumn charms with milder temperatures and changing landscapes. It is good to notice that the off-peak months provide quieter exploration opportunities. Even for those seeking winter sports, Greece offers snow-covered regions for skiing and snowboarding.

Late Autumn to Winter (November to March)

The winter months in Greece start in late November and finishes in March. Usually, Greece is less crowded during these months but it is important to note that some tourist sites, especially on the islands, may close or have reduced hours. In general, Greece’s coastal areas experience mild winters, but higher elevations and mountainous regions can be cooler.

Winter is an excellent time for cultural exploration and city visits, with fewer tourists around.

Even when Greece offers different alternatives any time of the year, we recommend you regardless of when you plan your visit, consider your unique mobility needs as the country is still doing its best to improve #accessibility, and not every destination may be completely accessible. Usually, the biggest cities and popular tourist spots offer better accessibility.

Therefore we recommend you to contact #CareunderSun to tailor your itinerary accordingly to your needs and plan your trip that includes all the accessibility you need in your destination.
