Into the Wild of Athens

Imagine being in the bustling city center of Athens, the cradle of civilization and in less than 40 minutes magically transit from civilization to wilderness. Leaving the vendors, the street markets and fast pace of city life behind to surround yourself with species likely to be encountered in far lands, marine mammals and reptiles, birds and zebras.
