WHEN TO GO
In the summer you can almost count on there being good weather in Greece. There are about 12 hours of sunshine a day and temperatures are usually in the 30s. As for rain, in July and August you’ll hardly see a drop. If you prefer things a bit cooler, spring and autumn see plenty of sun, but temperatures are a bit more comfortable, hovering in the mid-20s. These months, even in the peak of the day, are a great time to visit, especially if you’re into walking or sightseeing. There’s always a chance that you might experience a rain shower from time to time.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the Ireland. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Greek nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment.
