Best season to travel to Athens


Greek squid is splendid during the winter months and especially delicious when cooked with spinach, spices, and olive oil

Best time: December–February


This delicious seafood delicacy is mainly fried with spinach, cubed onions, garlic, pepper, salt, and of course olive oil—the famous elixir of Greece. Although most tourists come during the summer months, in general, winter is believed to yield better seafood. So, if you really wish to sample the best of Greek squid, come between December and February. Lower prices are also a pleasant bonus in addition to the succulent squid.​
