I work as a nanny and this upcoming Friday we are leaving to spend 4 days in London, and 13 in Greece (Santotini, Crete, Rhodes, and Athens). My little guy I take care of is 15 months, and I am wondering if anyone has any tips or ideas for visiting these places? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

There was a case a couple of years ago where two children were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning while on holiday in Corfu.

Apart from that though, there's nothing specific on the UK Foreign Office regarding travel to Greece at this time, other than the usual warnings regarding crime and the like.

There's a site which has a number of recommendations for travelling with babies which might be helpful here though: Travelling with a baby

Athens was not the most laid back European city after dark, for me. I had no disasterous experiences there, but it just didn't feel the most comfy. Just sharing my experience - and not expressing an opinion generally.
