Greece travel with infant/toddler ?
I travelled Greece (Athens) with a toddler. Greece is not at all Baby/Toddler friendly place. Due to the low population of babies, there is no infrastructure for small kids. Hardly found baby changing area in the public place. Streets are not buggy/pram friendly. All the sight-seeing not accessible for buggy/Prams. Loose chips, slops and lots of stairs which is not an ideal situation for toddlers.
Still you booked your holidays like me, bring carrier bag for baby/toddlers with you. Take Strong wheel buggy/ prams. Hats and umbrella to protect from sun. And Get ready to hold them tight with you to have a fun.
