Athens



What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

It's typically a four-season country. - Oct 3, 2017
It is hot and dry in the summer. Winters are not extreme. It rains some during the fall and winter, but not excessively. - Jan 15, 2017
In the winter and spring it rains a bit, dry and hot in summer and fall. Beautiful blue skies most of the year. - Dec 20, 2016
Beautiful in fall and spring, mid 70's F. Winter is fairly mild, and we lived in the northern suburb where it snowed every February. Summers are very hot, 90's F. The Embassy has a swimming pool, for a fee, and there are many beaches to cool off at. The best time of year is August when all the Greeks travel so driving through Athens is finally decent. - Sep 7, 2013
Mediterranean. Hot summers with low humidity, even though it has climbed in recent years. Wonderful during spring and fall, when it rains the most. It can be chilly during winter. In the interior of the country and the north, it can get quite cold during the winter. - Jul 14, 2012
