first greece visit in late oct/early nov

we're planning an 8 day trip in greece starting at the end of october, but because of the short duration, and the fact that it's out first trip, we're sticking to an itinerary of only "ancient cities" as listed below:

Athens

Olympia

Delphi

Kalambaka

our itinerary will roughly correspond to this:

kensingtontours.com/tours/europe/greece/-anc…

as beautiful as the islands are, we're going to have to visit them another time.

my question - is this a good time to visit?

will the onset of cold weather and rain* affect any of the cities we plan to visit, or are colder temperatures and rainy days only expected in mid-november and beyond? also, will transport to these cities be difficult to arrange in any way, or does that only apply to island ferries?

any advice would be appreciated. thanks in advance.
