best time to cruise Greek Isles

We are searching for a cruise through the Greek Isles. Some leave from Rome, some from Venice. What would be best? End of August or beginning of September seem like the best times - maybe not so burning hot. Advice, please.

1. Re: best time to cruise Greek Isles

Although have not been on a cruise from Italy-Greece, would opt from Venice starting point.

Beginning of September would be better, the weather being not so hot, and there is less hassle on the islands, as the Greeks have finished their holidays, you will get much better service then.

When living in Greece, I always took my holidays from Sept onwards.

Enjoy your stay !

Thank you for these valuable tips and advice. We had read that the shops, restaurants would be closed after a certain time, and we did not want to go than. Anything that we should see while sailing there?
