The meeting will take place in the dome building, in the premises of the National Observatory of Athens in Pedeli on ‘Lofos Koufos’, Vasileos Paylou & Ioannou Metaxa 1, 152 36 Penteli.

The observatory is accessible by public transportation. The closest bus stop is called “CHARAVGI”. From there it is a 20-minute walk to the observatory.

Bus Line 460: From Halandri Metro Station (Line 3) towards Palia Penteli.
Bus Line 461: From Halandri Metro Station (Line 3) towards Palia Penteli.
Bus Line 446: From  Marousi Train Station (Line 1) towards Penteli Hospital.


However the easiest way to reach the observatory is to take a taxi. If you choose to stay in Halandri (see next tabs) the expected cost is 10 euros approximately and 20 min driving distance.

We suggest to stay in Halandri area which is reasonably close to the observatory (~10 km) and also close to the historic center of Athens (~10 km). Athens Metro Line 3 and bus shuttles, connect Eletherios Venizelos, Halandri and historic center of Athens. Feel free to explore other options for accommodation in the center of Athens but note that the transportation to the observatory may take much longer particularly during the rush hours.
