I recommend staying in City Centre(Acropolis) as most the tourist place is by walk and into the city. You can always try to find a suitable hotel with a view of Acropolis which will make your holidays more memorable.

  • How much local transport cost in Greece?

Taxis are very cheap to afford local transport. All main city has huge connected transportation system.  It is a combination of City buses, trolley-buses Athens Metro, Tram, and  Suburban railway all in one. Buy 5 days all mode ticket for the cheaper option to avail.

  • Greece which island to choose? Which is the best island?

There is 19 best island in Greece, depend on how much time you have to explore. 3 Greek island (Aegina, Pores, and Hydra) are very near to Athens where you can day trip. The Best island is Santorini known for the white villa and exotic beaches.

  • Greece travel with infant/ toddler?

I traveled 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 by buggy/Prams. Loose chips, slops and lots of stairs which is not an ideal situation for toddlers.

Still, you booked your holidays for me, bring carrier bag for baby/toddlers with you. Take Strong wheel buggy/ prams. Hats and umbrella to protect from the sun.  And Get ready to hold them tight with you to have a fun.

    These tips are the same ones I would use for those travelling to Italy 🙂 It seemd like Italy was a little more toddler friendly though. Did restaurants have highchairs or booster seats?

    Hello there! I’m from Greece and indeed these are the best months to visit our country. Mostly September. Another tip I have to add especially for Athens, is to take care of your belongings cause especially now with the economical crisis, we’re not the safest country in the world 😀 Awesome post though! I love to read what other people think and say about my country!

    To be honest I am surprised it’s not child friendly. The child friendliness would influence my visiting as I have 3 children and there are so many other places that are child friendly that you can visit.

    I’m glad that you brought up that Greece is less expensive than other European countries. Greece is a good choice for those who want to go to Europe, but don’t have as big of a budget. I’ve always wanted to go to Greece and have been tentatively planning a trip for next year, so these are some good things to know. http://delfiniagroup.com/

    It’s interesting how you point out that Greece is less expensive than other European countries. My husband has always wanted to travel to Greece and see the sites. His birthday is coming up, and I think it would be a fun surprise to take him there. It’s really nice that it’s less expensive, too.
