If you have a layover in Athens before the flight to the island or home, why sit around and look at stressed people when you can see one of the happiest collections of animals in the world. The zoo in Spata is one of the most humane and is the third largest bird collection in the world. It is a very short ride from the airport (approx. 15 - 20 min.) and if you are traveling with kids it is a good way to keep them happy and interested in what would normally be wasted time.
