Weather in Athens Mid May

We are taking our first trip to Greece in May 2006. We will stay 6 days in Ahens. Is the sun going to be strong in May? Would we be able to lay by the pool?

Thank you.

Correct, spring and fall are the best times to visit Athens weatherwise (http://www.athensinfoguide.com/carrental.htm). Bare in mind though that you will not have the same hot weather as you would have in summer and that there occasionally may be a few cold or wet days.

It can swing either way, but chances are it will be sunny and warm enough to lay by the pool.

I normally go swimming in the sea from 1st May onwards, but many would say I'm mad!
