Enjoy the heart of Athens
We will arrange your transfer from Eleftherios Venizelos airport to your hotel. The first day is at your leisure as we understand you might want to get some rest seeing as you will have had a long journey. However, if you have arrived at a convenient time you may want to see a bit of Athens even on this first day. You can enjoy a stroll in the city centre, perhaps taking in Syntagma Square and the Greek Parliament. Alternatively, you could visit Plaka and Monastiraki, two of the most beautiful neighbourhoods of the city centre. You will soon realize that both are a sightseeing paradise where historical monuments blend harmoniously with city life. If you want to see a bit more of Athens and feel you have the time, click on the link here to find out more about our kid friendly activities. We can recommend family friendly restaurants in the centre for when you feel peckish – or even book one for you.
Insight to the Golden Age of Pericles
After breakfast we will take you to the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. The tour is private, specially designed for families, and lasts for 3 hours. Walking time is 40 approximately minutes. Don’t worry that the children will get bored or tired as our guide will keep them interested and entertained. If you want to take your family visit to the Acropolis to a completely different level, we highly recommend the amazing Acropolis’ 3D app for families. The Acropolis 3D app is actually a virtual time traveling gadget that will make you feel you have become part of the glorious era of the Golden Age of Pericles. With the use of mini iPads, you will be able to zoom in and out, and get a closer view to all the details of the monuments as they used to be in ancient times. There are some more kid friendly tours that we suggest. Click here to find out our favourite list. After the tour you can visit the neighbourhood of Psyrri for some seriously delicious Mediterranean food. There are traditional tavernas and some of them have live Greek folklore music. If you want us to book a kid friendly restaurant for you, just let us know.
A last stroll in Athens
Enjoy breakfast and if your departure is not until later in the day then head out for a last stroll at Anafiotika in Plaka where you can wander around the cobblestone little alleyways. Sip a lazy coffee under the sun and indulge in some Greek olives, feta and Greek wine. Your only concern will be to be back in time for the transfer to take you back to the airport! We won’t say ‘goodbye’ but ‘see you again soon’!
