Athens does not stand out for its quantity or museum quality, but it is a city with cultural and artistic proposals for all audiences and budgets. Its great virtue lies in the fact that it is the ideal place to bring the little ones closer to fantastic worlds such as archeology, mythology or classical history.
Alternate your cultural visits in Athens with tours of the Pedio Areos Park and its great Minoan labyrinth or go to the Botanical Gardens to enjoy the zoo, the pond or the more than 500 plant species.
Inaugurated in 2009, the new Acropolis museum is a spectacular building that houses an exhibition of more than 2,000 archaeological pieces found on the Acropolis itself.
