Visiting Greece for Vacation

Greece is a country in Southern Europe that is also considered part of Western Europe. Athens is its capital, and it is also the largest city in the country. The population of the country is approximately 11 million. Modern Greece has roots to ancient Greece, which is considered to be the birthplace of democracy and Western philosophy, and it is also the birthplace of the Olympic Games.

Both the Olympic Games and the Parthenon are examples of Greek culture that must be seen by travelers, even though the Olympics now travels to different cities around the globe.

Best time to take a vacation to Greece

  • Peak visiting seasons in Greece include the months of July and August, when you can expect the weather to be warmer. The off-season is considered to be December through March, when the temperatures and weather are not so reliable. Room rates will be at the highest between July and September, so you should plan to visit during Greece around spring or fall when you book on Orbitz.com to save the most money.
