Other Need-to-Know Information about Greece
Greece is an incredibly popular tourist destination, and it’s easily understandable why! The culture of the ancient Greeks has shaped nearly every aspect of our current Western way of life - arts, language, sports, even our governments! The physical remains of that culture can still be explored throughout Greece, and the Acropolis and other sites, should not be missed. You might also be surprised by the diversity in geography and natural beauty throughout Greece. There are obviously the thousands of Greek islands, and countless beautiful beaches, but there are also mountains, lakes, and thick, ancient forests.
The climate is also generally quite wonderful, but does vary significantly throughout the country. The majority of the country, including all coastal areas, experience hot, dry summers (April to November) and cold, rainy winters (December through March). Summer evenings tend to be absolutely splendid. Despite hot temperatures during the day, the low humidity does not trap that heat. As you get further to the north, into the interior and higher altitudes, the climate does shift to include colder, harsher winters, and cooler, more humid summers. June through September is when we would recommend any sort of motorcycle tours Greece.
The international airport in Athens is the main arrival location for international flights, but during tourism season there are also flights arriving daily to the islands and smaller cities. Several other airports include Heraklion, Thessaloniki, Rhodes, and Corfu. As a member of the EU, Greece only requires a valid ID card for all other EU citizens. While a valid passport is still required, many other countries, including the United States, can enjoy stays of up to 90 days without a visa.
