We are thinking of visiting Athens in early Easter. How cold/warm will it be then? is it often rainy in Spring? Does it rain all day all just usually a downpour of a couple of hours?
I understand that the Greek Easter this year falls on Sunday 15 April; will the tourist attractions, shops, commerce etc be open on the week just before Easter?
We will be travelling with 4 kids (ages between 12 and 5); are there any particular sights/itineraries that you would recommend? Are there any easy day trips to do (which would not require car hire)?
