Planning a Family Tour in Athens with Kids
The “sky of Attica”, celebrated in the writings of Greek and international globetrotters, poets and artists, enlightens all the beautiful parts of the Greek soul. It is this sky, so high and blue, that renders Athens one of the brightest cities to visit all year round with kids, or without!
Athens is lively, dynamic and rich in sites, history and mythology. Apart from its Classical past, Athens is a city continuously inhabited since 4,000 B.C. and is steeped with traces of almost all cultures and civilizations that flourished in these lands, some of which have formed part of modern Greek identity. Its rich history, its positioning at the cultural crossroads between the East and the West, and its energetic past and present are the main reasons for which Athens is a must-visit city. Curious kids will have their imaginations ignited by the magic of ancient civilizations and be able to visualize where Greek mythology was born while exploring the layers of history in a living city.
Moreover, Athens is not only among the European capitals for a city break with kids, but definitely a destination you will always appreciate for longer vacations. Being not only an “urban” city, Athens is embraced by beautiful mountains with a wide variety of flora and fauna, ideal for hiking or biking families and nature lovers, and by a stunning coastline that has much more than child friendly beaches to offer!
