Athens Kids Attractions

Athens has a lot to offer children. From a learning perspective, parents can bless kids with rich, authentic history lessons in a city that's been around for thousands of years and, regarding active types of fun, Athens won't disappoint. With warm summers and mild winters, Athens boasts the perfect climate for outdoor activities. Visitors can picnic with locals in the city's many parks and gardens, some of which have children's playgrounds; families can also take the cable car up Mount Lykavittos and let kids enjoy the view over Athens. Children tend to enjoy the city's theme parks and local go-kart track as well. Children's museums make for great outings when Athens does see some rain.
