Travelling with the kids is a great way to see and do things you might normally not do when visiting a city. This adds an added element of adventure, education and fun to your trip. Here are some great places to experience with the kids.  

FRIDAY: Be sure to take the kids to the Acropolis and New Acropolis Museum for a Greek history and mythology up close. There are also two great museums for children located in Plaka the Hellenic Children's Museum and the Museum of Greek Children's Art.

SATURDAY: The technologically advanced facilities here offer an experience that is sure to delight young and old. Visit the Foundation of the Hellenic World and the Eugenides Foundation Planetarium.  On the weekends, families flock to nearby Parko Flisvos and Flisvos Marina for their promenades and playgrounds. The latter also boasts a popular TGIFridays. The tram just outside each, can also take you to a mini-amusement park in Glyfada. Close by and accessible by taxi is Allou Fun Park.

SUNDAY:  If you don't spend the day at the beach, head to the Attica Zoological Park.

Tip: Greece and Athens is a child-friendly city, which means dining with children is in most cases not an issue.
