Visit the Acropolis with Children

My kids visiting the Acropolis in Athens, Greece.

Kids love the Acropolis! It’s an unforgettable adventure and a perfect idea to kickstart your Athens trip with the family. A visit to the Acropolis is one of the most entertaining things to do in Athens with kids.

It will make the whole family travel back to Classical times, discover the origins of democracy, and teach a lot about one of the subjects kids love the most: Greek mythology!

Climbing up the Acropolis, discovering the Parthenon and the several other temples and monuments on the hill, and looking out to marvel at the breathtaking view of the city is something that nobody in the family will ever forget.

For everybody to have a better insight and understand more of the surroundings, booking a tour that also caters to children can be just the right thing to do.

Athens with Kids - Acropolis
Impressed by the works in progress!

My kids (and me too!) loved the Mythological Tour of Athens, we spent about 4 fascinating hours listening to captivating stories of adventures and courage, with Gods, mighty heroes, and fantastic creatures, all of them related to every monument that we were looking at.

It was unbelievable! And the kids adored it!

Now that you know why you should really visit the Acropolis with your kids, let’s check some important things to remember:

Tips to Visit the Acropolis with Kids

things to do in athens with kids
It’s not hard to visit the Acropolis with kids if you pack right for the adventure!
  • Athens enjoys quite mild weather during long months, as from late April until October, you should expect to enjoy pleasant temperatures, peaking from June to September. This means that every open space (including archaeological sites, open ruins, and even parks) can get extremely hot. As a consequence, remember to:
  1. Avoid the hottest hours in the day: Try to visit early in the morning as well as close to the sunset hours. You will not just avoid extreme heat and sun, but also the summer crowds and tons of tourists.
  2. Pack accordingly: Remember that kids will need extra sunscreen protection, remember to put that high SPF lotion in your bag and add a hat, sunglasses, and plenty of water too.
  • Kids will need to walk a lot, sometimes even hike and climb, so being comfortable is important. Make your kids wear comfy walking shoes, well-ventilated if in summer. Remember that the Acropolis has very slippery grounds in some areas, so make sure their shoes help prevent falls and accidents.
  • Since the Acropolis slopes can be slippery, rocky, and hard to walk around, strollers are not permitted on the site. Carrying a baby with a sling can be a good solution. Do not worry about visiting the Acropolis Museum afterward, they do have baby strollers available and free of charge.
  • While the Acropolis offers toilet facilities, baby changing rooms are only available at the Acropolis Museum.
  • Operating hours tend to change from summer to winter, but also during holidays… and (unfortunately) pandemics. On some days, the entrance ticket can even be free of charge. Keep this in mind when booking your tour. Check the Acropolis official site for more information.
  • You can also get your e-tickets from the official e-ticketing service of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports here.
  • Don’t overpack. Remember that there’s a baggage control system right at the entrance and that a cloakroom is also available to deposit your bags.
  • Do not wear heels (it would not be reasonable, plus they are not allowed in archaeological sites either). Small to medium backpacks are ok.
  • Pack your camera to capture all those amazing family moments in the Acropolis. If you want to access the site with a tripod, it will be necessary to ask for an official permit in advance.

REMEMBER: The Acropolis does not allow baby strollers, but it is a good idea to visit the Acropolis carrying your baby in a baby carrier or sling. If you plan to visit the Acropolis Museum after, you can borrow a stroller – free of charge – from the museum.

One thing that you should remember is that the museum is really interested in making the past accessible and comprehensible for children.

So I suggest looking at the Acropolis Museum’s special page for kids. It offers practical information for parents and it also features interactive activities and games for the little ones, as well as a list of all the activities geared to kids in the program.

The museum also features family tours, an educational lab, kid-friendly guides, and many other special family events.

Witness the Imposing Change of the Presidential Guard: Kids Love It!

There’s nothing more mesmerizing than witnessing the change of the presidential guard at the Greek Parliament, right opposite Syntagma Square.

The ceremony takes place right at the Monument of the Unknown Soldier every hour. The soldiers, also known as Tsoliades or Evzones are expected to stand guard in total silence and expressionless for 60 minutes at a time.

The ceremony of the change of the guard is unique to the capital and it’s such a popular attraction that it’s not odd to find the area crowded upon arrival.

These soldiers belong to the elite unit of the Greek army, which dates back to 1868. The ceremony is unique to the capital city and very special – get there early as you will not be the only one with this idea!

If you’re up to a more special ceremony, then don’t miss the change of the guard that takes place every Sunday at 11 am.

It includes the presence of more soldiers and a military band. No matter when or what time you visit Syntagma, don’t miss it!

Location: Greek Parliament.

Take a Break at the National Garden

Traveling to Greece with kids in spring? Then how about taking a break with a picnic at the National Garden?

This public park in the center of Athens is an amazing place to spend some time with children. You can find the National Garden right behind the Greek Parliament building and it is easy to spot due to the incredibly tall palm trees that welcome you at the main entrance.

This huge green oasis is the ideal spot for a picnic, with its tranquil paths to walk, bike, and enjoy a pause from the chaos of the capital.

Inside the park, there’s a small farm with animals, a pond, and an interesting botanical museum. For small kids, there’s a large sandbox to play in and have fun. You can also find a library dedicated to kids and a cafeteria.

Location: Leoforos Vasilisis Amalias (you can also access Leoforo Vasilisis Sophias, Herodou Attikou Street, and the Zappeion Park area).

The Little Kook’s carriage at the entrance.

Arguably one of the places that my kids enjoy the most in Athens, this unique cafeteria invites you to an incredible, enchanting world in the heart of the hip Psyrri neighborhood, just meters from Monastiraki Square.

This unique, themed café is a wonderful place for a family afternoon in Athens. It is located at the end of a gorgeous little alley which has been renovated by the locals as part of a requalification program of the area.

The easiest way to spot the café is to look for the fantastic dragon sitting on top of its roof. On the outside, there’s a carriage inviting you for an unforgettable ride into the parallel realm of magical fairytales.

Once inside, the kid staff, all dressed up in the theme of the season — which can be anything from Halloween, Christmas, or even a special fairy tale — will welcome young and adult guests to the café with dimmed lights and a mysterious atmosphere.

In the venue, there are several floors with decorated walls, fantastic staircases, as well as unique hidden and mysterious corners. Kids will marvel at spooky witches cooking spiders in their cauldrons.

The menu features delicacies for all tastes, and although it might be considered a bit on the pricey side, the experience is worth the extra Euro.

Coffee, teas, hot chocolate, juices, but also cupcakes, sweet and savory crepes, unique desserts, and more are served with taste and according to the seasonal decor.

The Little KooK is popular both among locals and tourists and it also caters to an adult public, with a good variety of wine, beer, and other alcoholic drinks… and of course, is one of the most magical places to visit in Athens with children.
