The Greek Islands enjoy rainless skies during summer, with an average temperatures of 25 - 28 degrees. However the Cyclades (Amorgos ad Mykonos particularly) are pummelled by the Meltemi winds which hit with fury in late summer.
The largest denomination is the Greek Orthodox Church and Christianity. Other major religions include Catholicism, Hellenic Neopaganism, Protestantism and Islam.

Best time to go
To avoid the jostling summer crowds, inflated prices and heat, springtime (March - May) and autumn (September - October) is the absolute best time to visit.
