In planning our trip to Athens trip, we weighed our options for visiting one or more of Greece’s famed islands but determined it would be both too expensive and too demanding for our young crew. Our consolation was a kid-friendly day cruise in the Athens Riviera, which proved to be a highlight of our trip, not least of all for the boys.
Greece offers cheap (and short) flights, reasonably priced accommodations and a bounty of interesting things to see — I mean, it is the birthplace of democracy, after all, and the Apostle Paul preached there. Plus the food is fantastic. Read our post about Athens for more on that.
