If you’re looking for a wonderful family adventure packed with interesting activities, outdoor exploring and a whole lot to learn in an interactive manner, then Greece is the ideal place.
Bring the myths and legend of ancient Greece to life as you and your family visit ancient ruins and impressive landmarks like the towering Acropolis in Athens. Or marvel at preserved frescoes and the ruins of a Bronze Age settlement, Akrotiri, that was buried by volcanic ash. Budding young archaeologists will love a visit to the archaeological sites.
The cities themselves are also fascinating for travellers of all ages. Wander through Mykonos and stop for snacks and light meals at welcoming family-friendly cafes. Travel back in time as you visit the castles and palaces of the Peloponnese, and watch out for horse-drawn carts and bicycles in the centre of Spetses. Discover a love for Greek food and join in on a cooking class or two so you can take your favourite recipes home with you.
Across the country, there are parks and open spaces for children to explore, some with playgrounds, and others with jogging and cycling tracks. For families that love to walk and hike in nature, there are mountains and forests to tackle. And keen cyclists can explore the villages and towns on two wheels.
With 16,000km of coastline and a collection of islands, the beach and water is a huge part of a visit to Greece. Relax on the bright white sands of a secluded beach and splash in the brilliant blue water, or hop on board a boat and see what the different islands in the Aegean and Ionian seas have to offer. Whether you’re in the mood for watersports, or you’d rather keep your eyes peeled for wildlife, Greece’s coast is never dull.
