Greece is and always has been one of the most popular holiday destinations that welcomes millions of visitors from around the world each year. Most come to visit Greece during the summer months from June to August so they can enjoy the gorgeous beaches and the sunny weather. But few have attempted to discover how much better it is to visit Greece in the Fall season from September to late October. There are so many reasons why the latter is the best option!
To name a few reasons, during the summer months everything is overpriced including air fare, hotels and restaurants. The beaches are overcrowded and the sea water is still cold from the winter months. All of the ports and ferry boats are packed with people that want to visit the Greek Islands. There are long line-ups when visiting ancient archeological and historic sites. Basically everywhere you look there are people rushing to fit in all the activities they can in their compact schedules instead of enjoying their vacation.
However in September the beautiful sun is still shinning in Greece, the temperatures are still hot, the sea water is now warm, the beaches are comfortable, the prices everywhere are more reasonable, the line-ups are almost nonexistent and the Greek Islands are gorgeous this time of year. Without a doubt it is the best time to sit back, relax and enjoy your vacation.
So how can you explore and discover all that Greece has to offer? Surely you don’t want the hassle of waiting for a bus or a taxi! You want to come and go as you please with no restrictions or timetables. So it goes without saying that the best way to get around easily is with a Car Rental Greece. Furthermore, there is an added bonus, during the Fall season you can enjoy cheaper rent a car prices plus a larger variety of fleet is available at your disposal.
