Holidays in Greece in November
November for Russians, to put it mildly, is not the most joyful month. The snow cover has not yet settled, from the sky cold thorny grains are falling from the sky, then a sticky nasty rain drizzles. Depression is rarely avoided. And some «lucky» go on vacation exactly in the last autumn month. I just want to escape to some sunny country for at least a couple of weeks and get a boost of energy and vigor for the whole winter. Why not choose Greece for this?
Unfortunately, a beach holiday in Greece in November is no longer possible. The water temperature does not exceed + 18 °. Of course, there are also swimmers, but they are rather an exception. But on the shore in a sun lounger, you can lie under the cool but gentle sun and breathe in the sea air.
The coolness of November significantly reduced the number of tourists not only on the beaches, but also on the city streets. This cannot but please those who do not like hustle and bustle and appreciate a calm, measured pastime. In addition, a decrease in the number of tourists leads to a decrease in prices for aircraft, hotel accommodation and procedures in spa salons..
In November, amateurs and connoisseurs of the sights of this ancient country go to Greece. And if walks and excursions in the summer under the scorching sun were very difficult, then in November they will bring real pleasure. The Greeks themselves like to take walks in the mountains at this time. Tourists can also join them..
What to see in November in Greece?
- First of all, it is the famous Athenian Acropolis. It is a gentle hill, on top of which are the ruins of ancient temples and palaces. Its height is 156 m. Most of the sculptures of the Acropolis today are copies. The originals are kept in museums in London, Paris and the Acropolis itself..
- Delphi is the city where the Pythian Games were held. They were considered the second most important after the Olympic ones. But the primary ones here were not competitions of athletes, but singing and poetry competitions..
- The island of Crete. It can rightfully be called a treasure trove of legendary ancient Greek sights: the Labyrinth of the Minotaur, the Palace of Knossos, the ancient city of Gortyn, the cave in which Zeus was born, and many others..
