Greece - Weather in December

Hi Guys.. I am getting married in December '14 first week. And would like to visit Greece for my honeymoon.

Plz suggest if that's a bad choice of destination.

We will be visiting Athens and Santorini. How’s the weather in Dec ? Will it be too cold to enjoy the beach ? We wanted to enjoy the night life as well.

Also I read somewhere that the ferry rides are infrequent during this time and many places (including hotels) remain closed. Please guide.

Hi MansiSharan. Congratulations on your forthcoming wedding and welcome to the forum.

Athens in December will be experiencing Winter. If by "too cold to enjoy beach" you mean sunbathe, then yes it will be too cold and perhaps even too wet. If you mean to walk on deserted beaches wearing plenty of clothes then you may be fine, although perhaps wet.

Santorini will be almost closed and with little, if any, nightlife.

That said, exploring Athens for a few days when it is a lot less crowded has much to commend it.

Have a look at this link to see climate in Athens.

So we have ruled Greece out. WIll visit Greece in Summers.

Also would have any idea about the climate in Spain ? Shall we be ruling out all the beach destinations out of our itinerary and should be looking for more in-land options ?

Which other European countries can we visit for our honeymoon. It will be our first visit ..

Will Paris be a good option ? Any help would be appreciated..

December is winter in all of Europe and the rest of the northern hemisphere. You will find a warmer climate in the Canary Islands which are politically in Europe, but geographically off the coast of Africa and are a popular winter destination for Europeans. Otherwise go for a city break in Paris or any of the major European cities but expect cold, wet weather.
