IF YOU ARE TAKING AN AIRPORT XPRESS BUS (€5 single ticket):

Take bus X95 to Syntagma Square. From the bus stop (you are dropped off to the right of the main square, if facing Parliament) you will go straight a few paces and take a right onto Amalias Avenue, following it down until you see a massive Roman (Hadrian's) arch on your left. You'll turn right on the cobble stone path that emerges here (Dionysiou Areopagitou) and follow it until the third left, which is Makrigianni St. Go straight down Makrigianni St. You should see the new Acropolis Museum on your right and some cafes/restaurants to your left (God's Restaurant, Regal Bar, etc). Straight ahead you will come to a five-way intersection with traffic lights. Go straight, veering slightly to the right onto Veikou Street. The kiosk and the Wind phone shop should be to your left. The Athens Studios office is in the Internet Cafe/Baggage Storage on the left at Veikou 3a, next to the Laundromat (€5 wash, €2 dry) and Athens Sports Bar (cheapest drinks around). Alternatively you can take a €5-6 taxi ride (but be careful of cons!). The walk is literally about ten minutes. There is no reason a taxi driver should ever charge more than 6 euros, if that. Don't get swindled!
