Peloponnese Peninsula Climate & Weather
Peloponnese Peninsula Climate Chart
The Peloponnese Peninsula has a typical Mediterranean climate, with mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers. Rain falls mostly between October and March.
Summer temperatures idle around 86°F (30°C) but can reach as high as 104°F (40°C) during the frequent heat waves. Indeed, the heat can be oppressive and uncomfortable, particularly for those unaccustomed to a Mediterranean climate. Temperatures are much lower in the higher regions to the north.
Spring and autumn are the best times to visit the Peloponnese Peninsula. Visitors will find plenty of sun without the sweltering heat of summer, or the inconvenient rains of winter. The western Peloponnese have less severe winters but also get the most rainfall. The east is more dry and arid.
