    The Agora in Athens, Greece is one of those destinations that you won’t want to miss! However, it can be a little tricky with kids. If you come prepared, you and the whole family will have a great time.

      Yes indeed, so much to see but without someone telling you what you are looking at, it is more difficult with young kids. However, I do love the fact that its so spacious and safe inside, they can run around and still get the vibe of the old monuments and imagine the old market place.
