While travelling to Greece, you cannot miss the opportunity to visit Athens and the world-renowned monuments and museums. The city offers everything from city vibes, an ancient old vibrant culture and arts scene to hospitable family activities and outdoor fun along the Athenian Riviera.
Exploring Athens will take you through the traditional streets of Monasteraki to the sweeping esplanade of Dionysiou Areopagitou. Discover picturesque places in the Greek capital as well as history and mythology. Landmark sites such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon, the National Gardens, Syntagma square, and the Temple of Olympian Zeus are just a few of the must-see attractions in the capital of Greece. Athens is great for families. It is such a historic place and there are lots of things to do. With perfect weather, good family hotels (some with a pool!) and easy to visit activities for children, Athens is one of the best places in Greece.
