Greece has some of the best weather in Europe – long, dry summers with poolside-perfect temperatures that kick off as early as April and last all the way to October. There’s little risk of rain, and as many as 12 hours of sunshine a day in midsummer. Things can get seriously hot, though, with July and August temperatures peaking in the early 30s – great for beach-lovers, although dedicated sightseers may want to pick the cooler spring or autumn months.
Kind Reminder: At the start and end of the summer season the weather cannot be guaranteed however, typically, the climate is much nicer than the UK. When the weather is cooler overnight, and in the day, the fresh and salt water pools will feel much colder. Please note in most destinations which offer a summer only programme pools are not heated, other than inside spa pools.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.
In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with restaurant staff and taxi drivers.
The official language of Greece is Greek. English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
