Seasonality and Weather
This tour is offered in spring, summer, and fall, the most popular being late spring and mid-fall when temperatures are mild, crowds thinner, and air fares lower. Spring is popular with visitors who enjoy green landscapes and wildflowers. The region has a mild Mediterranean climate with early springs, long dry summers, and autumns that are bright and warm into late October. Showers are possible in spring, rare in summer, and possible in fall, especially in November when it can also be windy.
