How to Get There

For a PDF copy of these directions, please email Philip Ammerman:

Start at the Stavros intersection, on Leoforos Marathonas (Marathon Avenue). You reach this by:

• Driving up Messogheion from Ambelokipous;
• Taking the Hymettos Ring or the Attiki Odos and exiting at Exit 15: Leoforos Marathonas, or Exit 16/Y7: Leontario, direction Rafina;
• If coming from Kifissia, driving through Meli-ssia, taking Anapafseos and Kleisthenous, which intersect Messogheion at Stavros.

Follow Marathon Avenue, driving past Pallini, Rafina, Nea Makri, and Marathon. About 30 km after Stavros, exit at the blue exit sign “Schinias” and “Olympic Rowing and Canoeing Centre.”

About 3 km later, turn right at the turn marked: “Schinias-Olympic Rowing Centre”, which is next to a bakery and real estate agency.

Drive by the Olympic Rowing Centre on your left. The asphalt road veers left: this is Leoforos Schinias. Drive about 2 km, passing a small hamlet of houses and tavernas. About 250m after the last taverna, turn right after the “Glaros” taverna sign. This dirt road leads you to the beach, and 2-3 tavernas. Turn right, following the dirt road parallel to the beach about 100m, where you will find our meeting spot.
