Greece landmarks with children
What sights in Greece are worth with children?
Greece was the perfect destination for a family vacation for us, on the one hand to spend free time on the beach bathing and on the other hand to look at the many historical sites. We were with the children in Greece and report here what is worth with children. The most beautiful sandy beaches for children, where is island hopping in Greece and which sights are worthwhile with children.
Athens with children and what else?
For us, the capital Athens is at the top of the list of interesting cultural excursions with children. That’s why we went there. The UNESCO World Heritage Site Acropolis is interesting for the whole family – but very expensive. Other lively and free places like the Monasteraki Square with the historic Agora offer a variety of impressions for children. Here you will find everything that is interesting in Athens with children.
Outside of Athens there are other historical places like Delfi or Epidauros. We saved that and are from Athens to the islands in the Cyclades. It works well by speedboat.
Greek islands with children
Island hopping in Greece
The islands in Greece are very popular as excursion destinations. With so many, the offer seems endless. On closer inspection – and checking the ship connections – many islands fall out due to difficult accessibility and long travel times. We visited some Cyclades islands from the port of Piraeus. There are good connections with ships to the islands of Paros, Naxos and Santorini.
Between the smaller neighboring islands of Sifnos, Milos and Serifos, the amount of connections is thinning out. Depending on your budget, there are also speed boats, the travel time here is sometimes shortened to around half the normal journey time by ferry. If you want to translate to the islands by car, you are bound to the ferries. Only passengers are taken on the speed boats. We found beautiful sandy beaches on the islands – mostly without a lot of visitors. More on this below.

Paros and Milos with children
We also found great excursion destinations on the neighboring island of Milos: the children found the most beautiful the Paliochori beach, where hot springs IN THE SEA warm the water. Wonderful. There are also family-friendly sights and excursion destinations for all ages. We deliberately avoided the “dry” museums for children, which can be used to pull the mood down on family vacations.
