For more than 10 years Attica Zoological Park has been the premier destination for wildlife education and conservation in Athens. Travelers can venture through the lush grounds for an up close look at birds, mammals, reptiles and insects from around the world.
Whether it’s exploring the grey hornbills and spurred tortoises of Africa, checking out one of the fun-filled shows at the Marine Mammals’ Educational Center, or traveling back in time on a visit to the interactive Dinosavropolis, there’s something for everyone at this favorite stop for families on holiday in Athens.
The zoo is located in At Yalou, Spata. It’s accessible via Bus Lane 319. Insiders say the zoo is busiest on Sundays between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., so travelers looking to avoid crowds should plan to arrive earlier or later on Sundays.
