What is the best time to visit Athens?

The best time to visit Athens is typically during the shoulder months, April to June, and September to October. In these months, the weather is pleasantly mild, ranging from 15 to 25°C, making it an ideal time for exploration. During April and May, Athens comes to life with blooming flowers and outdoor events, while September and October offer a similar experience with fewer crowds. 

However, it's important to note that summer, especially July and August, can be hot and crowded, impacting the overall experience. Winters, from December to February, bring cooler temperatures, and while Athens remains less crowded, some outdoor attractions may have reduced hours.
