Enjoy a Greek Holiday

The best time of the year to visit the Mediterranean country of Greece approaching soon, which makes now the best time to make your plans for a visit by reserving a cheap car rental online.  The weather in Greece is currently rainy and quite cool, but by mid April the rains will begin to fade away to more and more sunny days.  Here's what you should do in Greece according to when you are able to visit.

March and April

Plan an itinerary that includes visits to indoor activities as well as walking tours and sight seeing by car rental from Athens Airport, with built in flexibility on which day you do an activity.  It is likely to rain at some point during your trip, making any walking tour of ancient monuments quite soggy.  Spend these days in a museum or visiting enclosed wonders such as the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights in Rhodes.

May-June or September-October

With little chance of rain and warm but not too hot temperatures, this is the best time to visit if you really like to walk, which is the best way to experience the attractions of Greece.  Explore the archaeological site of Olympia, visit the islands and walk around the beach town of Samos, see the ancient Mount Athos, or any other activity that suits your fancy.  You get the idea; this is the best time of year for those who really want to "see and do it all" with a group and a 7 seater car rental in Greece to have the weather on their side.


Post up in a resort, on a beach, or somewhere nice and shady, or visit the higher altitudes of Greece where the temperatures are cooler.  During July and August Greece can get quite hot, though not miserably so, and as long as you have plenty to do that doesn't involve carrying your backpack and five-year-old up a hill, you should be just dandy.  This is the best time for night owls to visit Greece, as the temperatures cool in the evening, lending to a perfect atmosphere to dance the night away in clubs by car rental.
