We are looking at going to Greece for our 20th anniversary which is March. But we aren’t planning on going in March as we know that is not the best time to go.
We are looking for which is the best month where it is off season and not crowded etc.
All the research I am doing is not directing me to a final answer 😊
Online research and guide books pretty much say May/June or Sept/October.
Almost all guidebooks say that even into first two weeks of June is still offseason, and Sept is off season, but a few articles are staying that June and September are still high season.
I know it could make a difference on where we are going, but that is not final. My current thought is Crete, Santorini, another island (naxos/paros or somewhere), maybe Mykonos and then just one day of touring in Athens. I will research itinerary and start a new thread for that.
Any help or things to think about on WHEN as nothing is really pushing us to one time vs the other.
1. Main thing I am worried about may/June is water temperature. Can we push into first two weeks in June and it be off peak.
we are not all day at beach people at all, but will want to be on the water and snorkel etc.
We do like the loner daylight hours.
2. September – do you think it really is still peak season.
we do like the thought of warmer water.
