Kids love the outdoors and love to explore! The Westin Resort Costa Navarino has added another exciting activity that allows kids aged 4-11 to do just that! Accompanied by trained specialists, kids are engaged in exploring and discovering ancient Greek history as Young Archaeologists. The children learn through fun and informative engagement, how to dig and discover hidden artefacts, study the finds, uncover their secrets, and become archaeological detectives as they try to crack the code of an ancient script, mirroring the process used by archaeologists.
