Come join us in Athens, Greece to ring in the new year!
Our pop-ups provide a super casual, budget-friendly opportunity to gather, connect with other worldschoolers, learn about the local area, instill new friendships, share your insights, and immerse in a friendly, accepting mobile community.
We’ve cherry-picked the best low- or no-cost activities that highlight local nature, arts, history, food, and culture… but you’ll also have plenty of time to relax, get to know each other, and even stray from the itinerary to add activities that cater to the group’s interests (we provide supplemental ideas to tailor your experience).
Pop in for a few days or the full week. Join as many activities as you’d like. It’s up to you! We would love to have you come and simply hang out with like-minded families while we dive in and explore the local offerings.
Our itinerary will include activities such as the following:
*New Year’s Fireworks
*The Ellinikon Experience Park
*Acropolis & Acropolis Museum
*National Archeology Museum
*Historic Syntagma Square for the changing of the guard
*Happy Train, a hop-on-hop-off ride
*Varvakios Market for olives, spices, nuts, produce, & meats
*Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center
*Monastiraki Flea Market
*Hike in the mountains of Athens
Option to add on Mount Lycabettus, Greek Children’s Art Museum, Museum of School, Life & Education, Athens Zoological Park, ALLOU Fun Park, Museum of Illusions, or Playmobil Funpark. Take a day trip to Goulandris National History Museum, Delphi, Corinth Canal, or nearby wineries and islands.
LODGING & NEIGHBORHOODS:
It’s safe to say there will be no localized neighborhood for this pop-up. We will group activities by area to explore a different part of the city each day. The host family will stay in the Koukaki neighborhood.
MEET YOUR HOST:
Rachel and her family will be hosting this event. Rachel’s family has been on the road full time since 2018 with plenty of travel experience prior to that. Two of their children will join in this pop-up (ages 13 and 15), their oldest is out of the home. Favorite family travel destinations include Spain, New Zealand, Mexico and Namibia, though Rachel also loves Sweden, Switzerland, and Laos.
