What’s the weather like in Greece in July?
Located in southeastern Europe, Greece has a Mediterranean climate along its beautiful expanses of coastline. Further inland the weather can be much cooler, especially in the central and northwestern mountain ranges, where there’s often snow for many months of the year. You’ll find hot summers all along the Mediterranean coast and islands, perfect for sun-filled holidays to Greece. In July, the capital Athens is hot with little chance of rain, with similar weather on the many islands of Greece.
In the capital city Athens, temperatures average around 29oC in the daytime, reaching highs of 33oC in the afternoons and lows of 24oC after dark. With 6mm of rain falling over one day in the month, you don’t have to worry about bringing a waterproof jacket. On Greece’s many islands, temperatures are often slightly cooler than the mainland, with averages of 24oC at this time of year. The south of Greece is typically much hotter than the north, so go to the southern resorts if you like more intense heat.
