Athens is a fantastic city to travel with your children. Often people are so excited to get to the many magical islands that Greece has to offer, they skip quickly past the ancient heart of the country. Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities of human history starting somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennium BC. This place oozes the energy of times past while welcoming the pulse of the new generation. Hense all of the creative, inspired, graffiti throughout the streets. The city is still dominated by the 5th-century BC landmarks, including the mesmerizing Acropolis, a hilltop citadel topped with ancient buildings. This alone is enough to warrant a time well spent.
There is no better place to rest your well worn feet (from all of the walking) than the Hotel Grande Bretagne. Located right in the heart of Athens, this gorgeous, did I mention luxurious, hotel delivers on everything including the view we all covet. You have everything from gorgeous rooms, cozy beds, marble bathrooms, indoor pool, amazing spa, and absolutely fresh, delicious, to cry-for-food (again with the view). Honestly the only hotel that competes with the Grande Bretagne is it’s sister hotel right next door, the King George Hotel.
