Greece has the most pleasant weather
The report covered perceptions of 87 nations and surveyed more than 17,000 people. The people were asked to rate destinations on 73 different attributes. One of these attributes was how pleasant a country’s climate is perceived to be. As a result, Greece ranked as the country with the most pleasant climate on earth. Greece also ranked highly in many other aspects of the survey, including second for heritage and third for adventure.
