The climate in Santorini is typical of the Mediterranean climate: generally sunshine throughout most of the year, sunny and dry summers whereas has mild and rainy winters.
The year can be broadly subdivided into two main seasons: the warm and dry season lasting from April until October and the cold and rainy season lasting from November until the end of March. Long periods of consecutive rainy days are not common in Santorini, even during the winter, and the sky does not remain cloudy for more than a few days in a row, as it does in other regions of the world. During the warm and dry season the weather is usually stable, the sky is clear, the sun is bright and there is generally no rain. The weather is ideal for the visit all over the year.
