Greece for a month with a baby

Jump to last reply

This trip, we are going to Greece with my daughter, son-in-law and one year old granddaughter. We are Australians, in our 60s, and will have a 24 hour flight to Athens. We are planning to spend October there.

Our interests are a mixture of sight-seeing historical sites, relaxing, natural beauty and good eating. With a one year old, some of this might not be as achievable in the past – we certainly won’t be doing any long hikes, for example as she will need to either be carried or in a stroller. She will also need day time sleeps.

We are willing to forego some important sights/sites in order to spend more time in some locations, especially as we have the baby with us. For example we would love to Meteora and Delphi, but it adds a huge amount of driving to the trip, so we are thinking of leaving that to a future trip (or maybe going to Delphi for a day trip from Athens)

At present, this is our itinerary. I would love some feedback on what you think of it.
