When to Visit
Many visitors think of Athens as being a hot and sunny place and while this is true in the summer, winters are cooler in comparison.
It is a very sunny city though, averaging close to 2,800 hours of sunshine per year and the sunniest months are from May to September.
If you don’t like the heat you should not visit in the middle of summer.
The average high in July and August is just over 33 C but if you’re right in the city it can feel hotter than this.
You’re better off visiting early or late summer, such as May or September.
From October it gets a little rainier though remains warm.
The coolest month is January when the average high is 12.5C.
