ANIMALS COMING INTO ATHENS

We've been told there's no animal reception area at Athens airport (we're flying in our cats with BA) and we've been told there is an animal reception area at Athens - anyone know for sure??

No animal reception but a resident taxidermist. Chances are they will be stuffed by the time you collect them, never mind, pet food is quite expensive for the good brands so you should save quite a bit long term.

Hi, managed to find a internet connection after moving to a wilderness. We hope to be on course for mid-March 2008, sold up and living on a farm with myriads of animals.
We are going to go through the pet passport proceedure in January and final worming etc 24/48 before departure. Is there any special proceedure in landing from a ferry from Bari, Italy, looks like two dogs and four cats unless the other half sees sense!
Our route was going to be using the Eurostar to Calais (£49 all in for the poor and needy apparently), hug the France/Belgian border, into Germany and south into Austria, Italy down to Trento where my sister lives and then down to Bari. Should be super fun as long as I wear ear plugs and don't mind the catawauling, barking and the GPS who regularly lapses into gibberish.
I'm a bit concerned at the time of year and weather! Still nothing ventured..........
