Greece on a Budget

Prices in Greece vary greatly by season. You'll pay the most for a hotel stay in July and August. On the other hand, winter rates for accommodations will be at their cheapest (that is, at the hotels that stay open during winter); the same goes with flights. Summer flights from the U.S. to Greece can be quite expensive, so look to book during shoulder or low season to save. A popular and budget-friendly way to tour the Greek Islands is by cruise ship. A variety of major cruise lines offer Eastern Mediterranean sailings, which stop at Greek ports including Athens, Corfu, Mykonos and Santorini.

Best Time to Go to Greece

The majority of tourists traveling to Greece go there in the summer months, when temperatures are perfect for beach-going. Travelers can enjoy comfortable weather -- while avoiding crowds of tourists -- by visiting Greece during the spring or fall shoulder seasons. Winter is the low season for tourism to Greece, and during this time, many hotels and attractions close down. But travelers looking to ski on Greek mountains can take advantage of powdery slopes during the coldest months of the year.
