FAMILY ORIENTED Greece is a wise choice for your family’s vacation because it is a society where children are the center of household attention. Resident or foreign, children of any nationality are adored and doted over in this child-friendly country.
QUALITY FAMILY TIME At home everyone tends to be running in different directions, but Greeks have a “go slow” approach to life known as “siga siga.” Adapting to this tempo, your family will share in a land with spectacular scenery, a charming culture and glorious historical treasures.
SAFETY Greece provides a safe environment for children in hotels, on the streets, at the sea. Outside major cities, crime is practically non-existent. If you get lost walking or exploring don’t worry about making a wrong turn into the wrong part of town – there is really no such thing as a dangerous neighborhood in Greece.
MEALS Even the fussiest young eater adopts a favorite Greek food and ends up ordering it over and over to test all its variations. Souvlaki (chicken, beef or pork) is usually a winner, but there’s plenty of pasta and pizza, too. Kids with more adventurous palates swoon over kalamari (which sounds better in Greek than squid does in English), eating it grilled, sautéed, breaded, fried or stuffed. Apart from the delicious healthy cuisine, parents will appreciate the abundance of fine Greek wines to enhance every meal.

You must purchase a full coverage policy for all family members, or provide proof of medical coverage applicable in Greece.
