Live plays are one of the oldest Greek traditions practiced in Athens!! There are so shows many especially during the summer time where you'll be able to see very talented and sometimes even famous Greek actors. Many shows will be held in Athens, but you can also catch some at the Epidauros theater and various theatres around the country. Some of the best theatres in Athens are...

1. Εθνικό Θέατρο
2. Θέατρο Badminton
3. Ωδείο Ηρώδου του Αττικού

I have seen a number of theatre and opera productions at Ωδείο Ηρώδου του Αττικού. I image I am living 2,000 years ago and imagine who has come to this theatre to watch a performance.

I haven't seen a play at Epidavros because it is not easy to get to from Athens. I would very much like to one day though.

Yeah....I've only been with a car. There is a bus but it takes forever and you would likely have to stay at a hotel for one night. Not sure if iy would be worth it

Tips on making your trip to the Acropolis kid friendly!

Many activities in Greece can be kid friendly, as long as you make some minor adjustments. The acropolis is a great place to visit but it can get a bit tiring for young kids who don't like being in the sun or walking up a lot of stairs. My first recommendation is to go very early in the morning, or late afternoon when there is not a lot of sun. Make sure the little ones are wearing hats and sunscreen and they are very hydrated. I suggest that you don't spend too much time at the top of the acropolis, but rather take a stroll through the museum and have a snack at the Café that overlooks the Acropolis. As always, you can make the experience more fun by getting some goodies at the gift shop.

You should visit the Port town of Lavrio near Athens

Lavrio is one of the best beachside places to visit near Athens. It's a bit of a drive so you'll need to rent a car or take a bus. There are excellent beaches and tavernas there and you can also visit the neighbouring town of Sounio where the famous Grecotel hotel is located. Since it is a tourist location, Lavrio has a bunch of water sport activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving, boat rentals and many more. it's a great two day trip if you're wanting to get away from the city life.

A walking tour of Lavrio, Greece

Lavrio is the coastal town in the southeastern part of Attica which is the region where Athens is located. This is a great place to visit if you want to go to restaurants and shop around, but also be by the water. Personally, I get pretty tired of staying in downtown Athens because there's not much of a breeze and I can't get to the beach very quickly. This is only super easy if you're renting a car, otherwise you can get to the beach or visit closer beach areas like Glyfada.

The best neighborhood to stay in Athens is Thiseio

The Thiseio neighbourhood is perfect for your stay in Athens because you are able to have access to some of the best sites. It is walking distance to the Acropolis, and Monastiraki as well as many different art galleries, shops, restaurants and cafés. When I stay in this neighborhood, I really don't find myself needing to stray and I can find everything I need in walking distance.
