June is one of the best times to visit Greece because that is when summer officially starts in the Mediterranean. During this time, Greece’s stunning islands burst into life. The warmer temperatures also create the perfect conditions for you to enjoy the destination’s beautiful beaches, as well as the dazzling and inviting blue waters. Let’s face it, the idea of spending your mid-year break on a lovely beach with a cocktail in hand does not sound bad at all.

Cairo, Egypt  

The pyramids of Giza is a big tourist attraction.

With warm temperatures and no chance of rain, mid-year is a fantastic time to explore Cairo and Egypt as a whole.
