We booked The Feast of Fables experience with our 2 children ( 9+6 ) and enjoyed it very much!!! The Athens National Garden is cool and calm, while the interactive game (based on Aesop's fables) played with the kids was fun, funny and kept them engaged. The team had great energy, spoke very good English, was energetic and kind. We recommend it and hope the team creates more story boards in different sites of National importance to keep us connected to our past while having fun in the present!!! - Dimitra T., Greece
Join this unique Athens treasure hunt with your family in this top Athens location, where the treasure (prize) is your picnic. At the end of each game you can win a piece of your own feast and enjoy it in the park. Each game is inspired by one of the narrated fables, allowing the children to discover and apply the wisdom of each tale. Or not – sometimes it’s pure fun and laughter for the whole family!
What is a fable? One of the oldest forms of storytelling: a short tale designed to teach a general truth. Aesop was a pioneer Ancient Greek storyteller. His stories feature heroes and villains: wise tortoises and conniving foxes, cocky hares and foolish crickets; each one of them revealing a distinct aspect of our human nature. This unique treasure hunt is inspired by Aesop, this unique creator from Ancient Greece who allowed us to reflect ourselves through his tales, no matter our age.
Where? Right next to the House of Parliament on Syntagma square lies one of Athens' secret gems: the National Garden. A hidden oasis of flowers, trees and plants, dotted with ancient ruins and ducks. A visit to this local attraction is an ideal setting for young couples but also one of the best things to do with kids in Athens. The park also offers a playground, a children's library and even a small zoo!
