On March 29th there will be a solar eclipse. Perhaps it would interest some participants to know that they could watch it on Wednesday, if they are still here. Coverage will be about 84%, largest than any other part of Europe. Totality will be farther south and east, unfortunately. For more information visit the DHAL website.

Some more informations:

Directions from airport to Parthenon Hotel:

Taxi: Taxis are available at the airport and they can take you directly to the hotel. Cost should be about 30-40 euro (but I am just guestimating). On Sunday traffic should be light, so total travel time should be less than an hour.

Metro: Recommended if you are travelling light. Take Metro Line 3. Every half hour leaving from airport to Monastiraki, from 6:30 until 20:30. Get off at Syntagma station (one stop before Monastiraki). Approximate time of travel 42 minutes. Then change line to Line 2, direction Aghios Dimitrios, get off at next stop (Akropoli) 2 minutes later. See the metro web site:

Hotel: Parthenon Hotel. 6 Makri street, Athens.

Info about Sunday dinner will follow. It will probably be scheduled around 8:00 pm and we are trying to organize it at some nice place close to the hotel (within walking distance).

Weather: March is the most unpredictable month. It may be warm (above 20 degrees) and sunny, or it may be cold and rainy. I recommend checking the weather on the Internet before departure.
