Pythagorion is at its busiest and best from spring until autumn but never gets overwhelmingly busy with tourists. Temperatures reach the high 20s and into the low 30s on most days throughout this period making it a very reliable destination in terms of the weather and things to do and see. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring. However, with most of the tourist sights having reduced opening hours and temperatures dropping off a bit, you may find that there isn’t as much to do in this resort at this time of year.
The resort of Pythagorion and the region that surrounds it is absolutely packed full of history and amazing sights to see. The statue of Pythagoras is one of the most prominent but there is also the Castle of Likourgos, the Church of Metamorphosis, the Ephpalinos Tunnel and the Roman baths to name just a few. Pythagorion is also known for its grand harbour with many yachts and sailing boats coming in and out each day. The harbour isn’t necessarily for just watching boats either; it also provides the opportunity to travel to several Aegean islands.
The accommodation options in Pythagorion tend to be on the more humble end of the spectrum but they are all still of excellent quality. There are some hotels with swimming pools that offer fantastic views over the surrounding area. There are plenty of picturesque apartments and studios that you can rent too. The best places to eat and drink in this resort are probably down by the harbour where you can sample some exquisite seafood and Greek dishes. However, there are some fine establishments dotted all over Pythagorion.
