Traveling to Greece with your children is full of adventures. There are so many things to do in Greece with kids making it a top European travel destination! You can explore countless ancient Greek ruins including the famed Acropolis in Athens. You can relax on pink, red or black sand beaches on the beautiful Greek islands. There is something for children of all ages to enjoy in this ancient city.

If you are traveling with a baby or toddler, it is best to travel with a light weight umbrella stroller and a baby knapsack for when you are exploring the sites. Diapers and baby food are readily available, however on the Greek islands they can be quite expensive so stock up before you head over there! Greeks love babies and children and they will be fussed over wherever you go!

The best time to travel here is from April to October when the weather is warm (and quite hot in July & August). If you want to visit the Greek Islands then your best bet is to travel during this period as you will have a lot more options for transportation to reach them.

Parthenon in Athens

A visit to the bustling city of Athens is a great way to explore the ancient ruins. The famous Acropolis and Parthenon are a must see attraction. An excellent way to introduce your kids to the fascinating history is to start with a visit to the New Acropolis Museum where they have a children's treasure hunt and a live view of the excavations. Athens also has lovely gardens, a zoo and a lake with healing properties nearby. Check out these cultural things to do in here.

The Greek Islands with Kids

My family loved the Greek Islands - especially Crete, Corfu and Naxos! This was one of the most relaxing family holidays we have had - lazy days at the beach, water games and indulging in the yummy food!

Crete Family Holidays

Toddlers and babies will love splashing in the shallow crystal clear waters, children will love a glass bottom boat ride and teens will be thrilled with a horseback ride through the olive groves.

There are many great options for accommodations for families on the island of Crete. Moderately priced family hotels, serviced apartments, family resorts with wonderful kid's clubs or luxury accommodations are all available.
