Greece BeachThe highest tourist season in Greece is in the months of June to August. Beaches that are bar-studded set the celebrations and Dionysian indulgence as the sun shines over the ancient cities of the country. For people who get annoyed with crowds or the frenzied pace of summer, visit to Greece during May, early June, or September must be considered. During this time, the stunning weather of the country smiles on smaller crowds. The unblemished areas of Nothern and Central Greece can be taken advantage by hikers during the mellower weathers of the country. The slopes at Mountain Parnassos, Mountain Pelion, or Metsovo can be hit with skis during the winter, another high season.

Nevertheless, attractions and accommodations have shorter operating hours or are closed during this period.

Modes of transport like ferries, buses, and trains are less frequently available and the life in the country and its islands is more peaceful.
