Weather this time of the year is mild. Not often rain, while wjat seems mild to me may seem warm to you.

This weekend is a not usual rain break. So temps are lower than usual, around 10 C to 18 C, while 14 to 22 is usually expected this time of the year. This rain break is announced in local weather forecasts to be over around Wednesday.

So. i think you have to pack moderately. That means spring clothing. Best way to pack this time of the year is what i advise as "layer clothing". That means:

top: t-shirt or short sleeve shirt + footer + light jacket

down: chakis style of pants and good athletic shoes.

This means you 'll be able to deal with any weather. Feeling hot on Acropols Hill? stay with t-shirt and footer around the shoulders, while jacket goes around the waist.. Feeling cool in an open air restaurant? pop all on and you are ok.

Pack a woolen pullover or a light fleece ( God, not an enormous one eating your valuable liggage space ) along with your baseball hat and you 'll be OK!
