Nemea with Kids: Mythology and Wine Tour for families
If you have kids that are into Greek Mythology, and are planning to visit Greece and the Peloponnese in particular, we strongly recommend that you visit Nemea with your kids. And if you are wondering what to do in Nemea with kids, here are some fun things to do in Nemea.
Nemea and viticulture for kids
Did you know that Nemea is one of the most important winemaking regions? It is not coincidence that Nemea was the favorite place of God Dionyssos, the “party animal” of all Greek gods! :-)
Adults winelovers (or Oenophiles) love the gorgeous vineyards and tasting the Agiorgitiko, one of Europe’s leading grape varieties. While adults will be enjoying their wines, kids will be learning all about wine production and engage in viticulture family-friendly activities.
Depending on the level of your interest and existing knowledge of viticulture as well as the ages of your kids, we will recommend to you the best winery to visit. That’s a really tough decision given the fact that there are almost 35 wineries in the area of Nemea!
Nemea and Greek mythology
Kids interested in Greek Mythology will love our Family Mythology Tours in the Nemea region, where the Archaeological site of Nemea and the ancient Stadium are located.
Our family friendly guide will share all exciting stories about the Nemean games as well as all myths of Greek heroes associated with the region. After all, this is the place where the great Hercules accomplished his first labor and slayed the Nemean lion.
