No 11. in Europe
John P April 2019
Positive A mountainous country with plenty of good scenery, forests, high mountain pastures, olive groves and some very pleasant cafes in village squares beneath plane trees. As well as popular places like Mount Olympus and Crete, there are little visited beautiful areas in the north of Greece and in the Pindus mountains. Churches, monasteries and some archeological remains add cultural interest.
Negative It can be very hot so best avoid the middle of summer, but if you go too early or too late snow prevents easy walking.
