Orthodox Easter Sunday is usually in late April or May every year. That said, the two weeks on either side of this holiday are ideal timing to visit the Ionian Islands. This period is one of the most significant celebrations to experience in Greece. The “Pot Throwing” and the colorful traditions are not to be missed.
The weather this time of year is beautiful, and the islands of the Ionian are in full bloom.
