Greek Orthodox and Western Easter Dates

Both Greek Orthodox Easter and Western Easter dates can be great times to visit Greece.

Some years, both Easters fall on the same Easter Sunday but most of the time, there will be two good reasons to visit Greece each spring.

In some years, the two Easters may differ by a month or more. The years when both Easters match are indicated by (same). And if you want to enjoy a matching Easter year, better do it soon, in either 2014 or 2017 - after that, there's a long gap before Greek Orthodox Easter and Western Easter coincide again.
