Why we like it

 A family activity in Athens off-the-beaten path!

Activity Description

Ancient Myths come alive in the mountains around Athens.
Discover the incredible wealth of Greek nature, just a few minutes away from the city centre, and learn about the secrets of Greek mythology in a fun and original outdoor activity for the whole family! 

In a playful way, children (and not only) will learn about Greek trees and plants, discover the ancient myths that surround them and make their own herbariums. The whole family will also enjoy a guided visit to an exquisite 11th century byzantine monastery.

This family experience in Athens is led by Stella, an expert in kids’ educational activities. The activity is suitable for children 6-12 years old, but it is designed in a way that makes it interesting for parents to attend.
