Conde Nast Traveller names Corfu and Santorini as top destinations to holiday in September



Corfu and Santorini have been named among the Top 25 destinations to go on holiday in September, according to the Editors at worldwide renowned magazine Conde Nast Traveller (CNT).

Galway, Ireland was ranked first on this list, Corfu in twentieth spot and Santorini ranked twenty-third.

Conde Nast Traveller notes that the most pleasant time to visit Greece and the Greek islands is during the “shoulder seasons April-May, September-October.”

“But blue as the Ionian Sea is, it’s still chilly in springtime – so we will plump for September in Corfu, when our morning swim is a warm and delicious affair, when the island’s forested hills are still green for afternoon dozes beneath the oaks and olive trees,” CNT said.

The magazine also strongly recommends Santorini for holidays in September. “The boiling, broiling summer rush is over, the sea is warmer than ever and the skies are blue, blue, all day long, and the evenings are cooler in its up-steps-and-down hillside towns. September sunsets paint the town of Oia gold, and the deep blues of the Caldera seem heightened in these days of late summer.”
