Directions to the hash (just for the record)


The meeting point is next to the National Observatory in Thesio. It’s easy to get to if you're using the metro.

Get off at Thesio metro and walk up the hill on the pedestrian road Apostolou Pavlou until you get to a road on the right that goes towards Aghia Marina church. To the right of the square in front of the church there's a path that goes up to the National Observatory. We can meet by the steps that go up to Phillappou Hill.

By car get on Pireous Street driving towards Pireous. Take a left turn to Thesio on Iraklion Street which turns onto Nileos. Carry on to the end of Nileos [it turns into Iraklidon]. If you're coming by car be careful at the end of Nileos next to loads of cafes - do not follow the road around to a right hairpin bend (on to Akamentos), but carry on (leftish) to what looks like a pedestrian walkway (cars are allow on this stretch) and take the second right turn onto Otrineon. Follow this road uphill as far as it will go - there will be plenty of parking spaces.
