Autumn is one of the most charming seasons of the year in Greece, which can be really warm until late October and with cooler, refreshing evenings even in November, especially in certain parts of the country.

Athens Riviera

Just 10 miles south of Athens, the seaside idyll of the AthensRiviera with its luxury seaside resorts, great beaches, and local charm awaits the most demanding of visitors. Here visitors can enjoy waterfront cafés, strolling along seafront marinas, shopping in local boutiques, dining by the sea, or visiting one of the coast’s buzzing night clubs all within a 35 mile scenic coastal road that connects the posh suburb of Glyfada to CapeSounion and the Temple of Poseidon.

Another perfect choice for a quieter escape outside the heat of summer, Crete has plenty on offer; guaranteed sunny weather until late in the season, miles of golden sandy beaches, natural sights such as the spectacular Samaria Gorge in the scenic White Mountains, ruined Minoan palaces, picturesque Venetian ports, top-drawer hiking and cycling opportunities, quaint fishing villages, plus the famed coastal resort of Elounda boasting some of the best accommodation in Greece.
