One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Attractions like Acropolis of Athens and Acropolis Museum make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Attica Zoological Park (in Spata), Corinth (Archea Korinthos & Akrokorinthos) and Nafplio (Ieros Naos Evaggelistria, Nauplion Promenade, &more). There's still lots to do: stop by Plaka, admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum, wander the streets of Monastiraki, and take an in-depth tour of National Archaeological Museum.
