Best time to visit Greece
From April through November, Greece enjoys constant sunshine. But the best time to book yourself Greece packages from India would be between April and June, and in the months of September and October. This is because these are great months to travel if you want to avoid crowds and steep prices. After November, temperatures in Greece drop and it gets too cold to experience the beachy persona Greece has, and travelling to islands is no longer an option as ferry services will not be available.
