Take your kids to Christmas theme parks and villages and enjoy inventive shows, concerts, and musical events in the streets. Later in the evening, dance your worries away in the rhythm of the nightlife.
A Christmas holiday in Athens will remain etched on your memory as a fantastic experience. Super star of the cultural venues will be once again the Athens Concert Hall, bringing to you music with Disney in concert, Magical music from the movies, ballet with Sleeping Beauty, carols and Christmas tunes with the Rosarte Children Choir, as well as many other shows to match every taste.

It lies on a former industrial zone on an axis between Athens and Piraeus, where memory of Athens past meets the city’s modern identity and architecture.
In its Tholos, a dome-shaped virtual reality Theatre, the three-dimensional film Darwin, the mystery of nature will be screened. Combine the screening with a visit to the exhibition Ice Station Antarctica, initially presented at the Natural History Museum in London.

In Drama and Trikala
Throughout Greece there is going to be a brimful of festivities and Christmas events. The reason why we chose the city of Drama as an example resides in the “Oniroupolis” (Dreamland): a huge ice-skating rink, an imposing carousel, a colourful fairground, huge slides, a Christmas village and an extra large hanging boat make up a world of wonder for you and your children.
In the city of Trikala, people flock to the “Magical Mill of the Elves” to experience the sweetest Christmas ever (until the following year, of course) in a special Candy City with Santa’s Home, the Elves’ Post Office, the Chocolate Factory, a Playmobil Castle, the Mill’s Bakery and other attractions that guarantee excitement for the kids and the young at heart.
