We want to tour the northern parts of Greece ( Meteora, Olympus, Saloniki and more. The time we have is end of September - first half of October. Is this a good season? What is the weather like?

In addition to the weather being well on its way to autumn you need to take into account that, apart from Saloniki it will be very quiet and many places that would have been open in summer will be closed. The season finishes much earlier in the north (generally mid September) than it does in the southern islands. Personally I would choose May/June for up there because of better weather and longer daylight hours.

Hey and welcome MB_Rehovot:-) The entire Country goes through weather changes come mid to end Sept.. but usually emerging into a wonderful Indian Summer that can last well into Oct:-) The North does tend to cool down a bit faster/earlier than the Southern part of the Country, but Oct is still a fabulous time if you don't mind some rainy/cloudy days along the way.. which again, can happen anywhere in the Country:-)

Having said that, it doesn't look like you're looking for a beach vaca.. great time IMO for what you're looking to see/do;-) Meteora and Mt. Olympus should be great at that time with most of the tourists usually only day trippers coming in on tour buses.. with a rental, which am assuming you'll have, you'll get to experience some wonderful out of the way villages as well;-) Looking out of Season offers a wonderful .. and different perspective to the Country.. and you won't fall short of finding places to stay along with way.. from rooms *domatia* to small hotels.. scattered throughout the area;-) Happy planning.. and EnJOY!
