Greece is a stunning European destination to suit all types of family, whether you're keen to explore ancient island ruins, spend your days sun-soaking on the beaches, or visiting the numerous adventure and water parks, Greece and its surrounding islands has it all. The country's unwavering popularity means there are plenty of holidays for you to pick from, some more expensive than others. The plush islands offer all inclusive luxury resorts, but families looking to pinch the pennies will also find cheaper options with food, accommodation and flights all included to save you the hassle.
Greece is an ancient land where a southern European sun beats down on bleached-sand beaches and brilliant blue skies seem to stretch on into eternity. The weather is one of the country's main lures, with sunshine from early spring through to late autumn, but aside from its climate, Greece is home to a vibrant and intriguing culture featuring a seafood-orientated cuisine, music and dance, and, of course, plenty of plate-smashing. Greece's capital Athens is an electric city with real authenticity. The city stands in the shadow of the impressive Acropolis reminding visitors of the country's link to medieval might. Head away from the mainland and to the enchanting coastline where the horizon is peppered with islands - all home to cobbled back streets and shimmering white sugar cube houses that overlook the ocean expanse.
If your idea of a family holiday involves lazing on the water's edge with toes dug deep into warm sand, Greece is home to some of the most spectacular beaches in the world. Santorini's blackened volcanic sands aren't to be missed, with Red Beach one of the most dramatic sights where the reddened cliff contrasts against the dark sand, as well as Shipwreck Beach on the island of Zante, where a boat trip to the island's hidden cove makes for an adventurous family day out. History fanatics shouldn't miss out on the Acropolis in Athens, the Parthenon, as well as the Ancient City of Kamiros which is immaculately preserved considering it dates back to the sixth century. Northern Greece is fantastically family friendly, offering theme parks like Halkidiki's Waterland and Luna Park for thrill-seekers.
