January is not the best month to spend holidays in Greece. The weather in Rhodes, Amorgos Island, Naxos, Paros, Athens, Sifnos, Santorini, Skiros island, Milos, Mykonos, Chios, Olympia, Kalamata, Greek islands of the Cyclades, Hydra Island, Samos and Corfu Island is quite correct. The sun is not there all the time and you may be faced the rain regularly. Nonetheless, if you don't plan a beach and sun holiday in Greece but rather nature excursions or hiking, this climate may be enough. In addition, there are certainly fewer tourists during this period.

But it is finally better than in Thessaloniki, Lesbos, Kalambaka, Delphi and Kos and surrounding areas where the climate is even worse. We really do not recommend you to go to these areas this month.
