Part of the Travel With Kids series.
Come along as the Roberts family explores the many layers of Athens, deemed by many to be the birthplace of Western civilization. The adventure begins on an overnight ferry from Italy to Patra in the Peloponnese and then a bus trip to Athens, where the Roberts check into a hotel on Syntagma Square. The kids are fascinated by the changing of the guard and their view of the Acropolis. After roaming through the National Gardens, the Roberts discover the ancient Olympic stadium, where the boys enjoy a race for gold on the track. What's a trip to Athens without visiting the Acropolis? But the Acropolis at sunset is even better: glowing orange shades cover the Parthenon, and there's a view of the modern city. The new Acropolis Museum, with its glass floors revealing the ongoing excavations of the ancient civilization under the city, makes the ruins come to life. Finally, the Roberts end their evening by strolling the narrow streets of the wild Plaka district and visiting its outdoor cafes and shops.
