4 Reasons To Visit Greece With Your Family
Going on holiday with your children can be a wonderful thing, but it can also be a worry; there is a lot to consider, and making sure you choose the right place to visit is one of the most important decisions you will need to make. Greece and its islands (especially Aegina, of course) are actually ideal spots for families so when you’re booking your summer getaway this year, make sure you think about these reasons why you should definitely be coming to Greece.
The food in Greece revolves mainly around the famous Mediterranean diet, which is all about fresh, delicious, healthy fruit and vegetables with plenty of olive oil. That’s not to say it’s dull, though, and it’s not solely a vegetarian diet either. There is a lot of fish (of course) that features, and meat is included too (lamb and chicken are especially popular). The dishes are wonderfully tasty and will fill everyone up perfectly. What does this mean? It means you don’t have to worry about your children going hungry. Even the fussiest of eaters will find something that they enjoy. Plus restaurants and tavernas are always happy to welcome children so you can eat without the pressure of wondering whether you are wanted there or not.
Kids love sandy beaches, and even if they like to spend a lot of time indoors when they’re at home, or they complain that they’re bored, you may be surprised at just how happy they are to play in the sand all day or go paddling in the sea. Something about the tranquility and peace allows them to enjoy the moment, which is really rather special. Because of this, parents often find that they too can relax and maybe even read a book or listen to some music while they keep an eye on what their little ones are doing. You’ll often find a range or ogranised activities on the beaches too so if you do want to stretch your legs you can find a beach sport that will give you the opportunity.
A family holiday can be a costly affair, especially as the kids get older. When travelling to Greece, however, you can find some excellent bargains if you compare flights and hotels beforehand. One tip that families might like to use is to look for flights in other countries (search for vuelos in Spanish, for example). Although this may not mean a direct flight, it can save you a lot of money which means more cash to spend on water parks, wonderful meals, and making memories with your family.
When you arrive in Greece, you’ll find that the people are extremely friendly and wonderfully receptive to children, which can really take a weight off parents’ minds. It is one less thing to worry about, and it makes the entire trip much more pleasant for everyone. You will, as mentioned above, be welcome in restaurants, but the same is true in hotels, in tourist attractions, and anywhere you happen to stop. This kind of friendliness can really make a holiday that much more special.
