Athens Zoo

A wild day out

Athens Zoo could be a great way to mix up a mainly history-based stay in the city. Whether traveling with the family or not, we recommend a trip to the zoo. This enormous reserve, which is home to the largest collection of birds in the world, is no ordinary zoo. What's more, you can also see all kinds of exotic animals in their native habitats. However, the star attraction is probably a journey through Greek history by way of its native animals. A different way to learn about the country through its own nature and wildlife; the kids will love it. The zoo is in Yalou, next to Spata airport, just 12 kilometres from the city centre with a continuous bus service (line 319) from Doukissis Plakentias station.
