Itineraries to make the most of your visit to Greece
There are several reasons to visit Greece in the off-season. One is low prices. Another is that the tourists are mostly gone and life has returned to normal. Another is that unless you live somewhere tropical or extremely mild, you will find Greece's weather even in the deepest winter to be warmer than where you are coming from and maybe with a few surprises. You can have snow on the mountains and a sunny day in the seventies in Athens and the islands. You will
see green grass on
the Acropolis and other archaeological sites. You can experience Athens during Christmas and Apokreas (Carnival) when eating, drinking and going out are at their peak in the city that has been called Europe's Most Liveliest. And if the weather is nice you can explore the islands and the mainland unhindered by the summer crowds. Here are a few itineraries and winter programs as well as some links to more information on off-season travel in Greece.
