The Acropolis of Athens was included on the list of the world’s Top 5 “Immersive Experiences” in the Family Traveler Excellence Awards 2019, based on the children’s vote.

The awards are decided by the readers of UK magazine for family holidays, “Family Traveller”. This year, readers cast over 110,000 votes to determine the 50 Family Traveller Excellence Awards winners.

The “Immersive Experiences” category awards the top five tours, treks and programs that go beyond tourism and allow families to fully immerse themselves in a destination.

The list also included Crans-Montana in Switzerland, Cite de l’espace in Toulouse, Jamaica, and Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Resort in Italy.
