Where should you go in Greece in december when it comes to the weather?

Remember:
The climate in Greece in december ranges from tolerable to very bad depending on the region and city.

warning in december the weather is not the same depending on the city and regions of the country.

Good news: It is not perfect, however, the weather in Greece in december is, on average, good in Rhodes, Amorgos Island, Naxos, Paros, Sifnos, Santorini and Milos. I allows to enjoy vacation in these areas. And even why not take a little time to lazing in the sun!

If you do not go for the sun or the beach, but, for example to discover the heritage, the cities of Athens, Skiros island, Mykonos, Lesbos, Chios, Olympia, Kalamata, Greek islands of the Cyclades, Hydra Island, Samos and Corfu Island have a quite correct weather for that in december. Eventually, avoid going to Thessaloniki, Kalambaka, Delphi and Kos in december because the climate is frankly bad.
