TIP: Are you planning to visit Greece? If yes, do your homework before you go! 

We highly encourage you to do a little bit of background reading with your children. This will help them get motivated for the visit and give them a better insight and understanding about what they are going to see. A really good start would be to get a book on Greek mythology (see our recommendations above).
