The best time to go to Athens and other places there starts in May to mid-June before summer arrives.  It is because there are fewer tourists in the streets and lower prices.  You will also experience better services during this time because fewer tourists are in there to avail of the services.  It is also good to take flights to Greece in September to mid-October.  The weather is nice and you will be comfortable with it plus no crowds in great and must-see places there.  By late October flights and ferry service start to cut back and many facilities close for the winter.  It is not wise to go to Greece in the winter which stretches from November to March because many hotels and facilities are not available although prices are its lowest.
