While sharing pictures of her vacation on the show, the 43-year-old host said her recent getaway "was one of those trips where it all came together so beautifully."
"We started out in Paris for a couple of days -- just a quick, quick trip to Paris -- and then we spent the bulk of our trip, 10 days, in Greece, going from island to island," she explained.
Ripa added later that traveling with her and husband Mark Consuelos's children as well as Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld's had been "perfect."
"It was like having no kids because they all amused each other and nobody drove us insane, so it was like a vacation," Ripa said. "They weren't fighting with each other and they weren't telling us how bored they were. It was perfect and so much fun."
The former All My Children actress said later that she "highly [encourages]" people who are undecided over where to go in Europe to travel to Greece.
"The people there are the kindest and the loveliest, and it's so beautiful," she said of the Hellenic Republic.
