Finding the Thai embassy in Athens, GreeceHi, all. I've been scouring the interwebs and my maps alike to find the Thai embassy in Greece, which supposedly is at 25 Marathondromon/Marathondromou St. in Paleo Psychico, 15452. However, my maps app is being uncooperative, and I'm not having much luck. So, any idea how to find this place? What's the nearest metro station? Also, what's the cheapest way to get there? Are there buses to the area? Thanks in advance. :)

3Hi, it seems strange that the official web page of the embassy has such a serious mistake at the directions map they provide. The problem occurs from the word Marathonodromon (plural form) and Marathonodromou (singular form) which lead to two different addresses one in Philothei - Psihiko -the one you want- and the other at Maroussi.
Marathonodromou street is home of many other embassies and is located next to Kifissias avenue.
Although there is no metro station serving the area, you can easily access it from the centre of Athens by bus or trolleybus that goes north to Kifissia, descending at 'Skalakia' or 'Faros' bus stop. Bus no. A7 should be your safer bet.
For maps, search in google maps for 'Marathonodromon 25-29, Filothei Psichiko' and press the bus signs for info on other bus lines that serve the area.
For Metro access, I would get off at Megaron Mousikis and from there I would have the choice of climbing on A7, 550, or trolley 10 to get to the embassy.
