Time Traveling With the Family Back to Ancient Athens, Greece
Get as giddy as a comic book geek as you guide your kids through the land of ancient gods and heroes. Characterized by sprawling, majestic ruins and mysterious sacred sites, the birthplace of Western civilization brings ancient history alive -- the ideal setting for a family trip. See Hercules battle monsters at the Acropolis Museum just as the Greeks did -- in colorfully artful friezes. Give your kids permission to shout and marvel at amplification technology created thousands of years ago at the acoustically-perfect Epidaurus amphitheater. After exploring the live excavations on the sacred isle of Delos, don't be surprised if you find a budding archaeologist in your midst.
