Short Family Trip to Greece -- Help!

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

My husband has a conference in Athens, and my two kids and I are going to tag along. We would like to make a short trip out of it and need help conceptualizing the itinerary. Our girls are 10 and 7, and we'd be flying from NYC. We would be going in mid-May. Our interests are archeological sites and ruins, ancient cities, and natural beauty.

We could either:

1) Stay in Athens for three days. Explore the Acropolis and other ancient sites. Maybe do a day trip to Sounion or to another site or two.

or

2) Spend a day in Athens and then head out to one of the islands by ferry and spend a few days there.

Should we explore Athens or venture out to the islands? If so, which one would be suitable for a family with kids, not too far from Athens because of our limited time frame? We could possibly stretch this vacation out to five days, tops. And yes, I know it would be better to spend two weeks in Greece. But for this trip, five days or so is all we have.

Thanks in advance for your guidance!
