Late Spring to early summer or autumn is the best time to take a cruise because the inflated summer prices and crowds are not present, plus there is very manageable weather with no heat waves over 40°C. Greece is a considerably warm country because all of the lands are close to the coast and it rarely drops under 5°C. 

Best Time to Visit Athens
Late spring to early summer or autumn is the best time to visit, as the weather is still great and the crowds are much more manageable. Athens has good weather year-round for the most popular activities such as walking around the city, eating at restaurants outside with tables and chairs, and taking bus tours. Most of the activities can be enjoyed year-round except going to the beach, especially if you’re planning on going in the water.

Best Time for Beaches 
The best time to go to Greece’s beaches is from June to September, any other months are usually too cold, especially to go into the water. If packed bars and live parties are your main interest August would be the best month for you. If relaxing at the beach with the least amount of people sounds like the best plan for you, June and September would be the best months to go as they are near the shoulder season but it’s definitely still warm enough to go to the beach. 

Best Time for Hiking
April, May, and October are great months to go hiking as the weather is generally the ideal temperature for hiking. The spring, in particular, is known for being super beautiful as most of the flowers are blooming. There is also slightly less rainfall during the spring compared to the fall. Although the fall has a little more rainfall, the temperatures stay at very comfortable ranges and the falling leaves of autumn offer amazing will be a beautiful sighting. 

Cheapest Time of The Year
The low season for Greece is from November to March, the cruise and hotel prices will be considerably lower during this time of the year. There are no cruises during the months of December, January, and February due to the colder temperatures, so if saving your money on a cruise is your first priority, November or March would be the best time to enjoy your holiday in Greece.
