day trips from Athens


In July, if we want to have a first week of seeing things opposed to laying on a beach, should we settle in Athens, the Piree or Hydra and do do trips from one of those places or rent a car and travel ? We're travelling with kids. We were thinking of Olympus, Delphy

Then we would like to go to one of the Cyclades islands and stay for a whole week then do the same on a different island and maybe again another week (going from 20th July for a month)

We'd like to go to Santorini and then to a very quiet island and then a moderately quiet one

hi..santorini is not children friendly,it has ll these cliffs and the beaches are volcanic grid..it has the great views of curse but the children will be soon bored,,

naxos is a common suggestion for families with kids,take a look at this thread..you can spend the two weeks there and your children won't be bored.


olympia and delphi are not for day trips,they are too far you need to sleep there one night ,visit the sites the next morning and return to athens afterwards..you can have day trips from athens to cape sounio and hydra

Probably better off basing yourself in Athens. As athanasios notes you can visit Cape Sounion and Hydra on day trips. You could also consider Aegina and/or Agistri, both of which are islands within easy reach of the mainland. While Olympia is too far for a day Delphi is much more easily doable.
