Tsoliades parade reminded me of the change of guards with horses in london. My daughter seemed to enjoy it and even repeated the steps later mimicking the guards. In this era everything that raises our moral is welcome and relieves our concernes for a while...
It is well worth a stop at the tomb of the unknown soldier to watch the changing of the guard. The pomp and circumstance surrounding this event is fascinating. It is like a Broadway choreograph! The uniforms are amazing as is high stepping performed by the guards.
We always visit the area on our own (without tour group) because we like to stay and enjoy the experience. Be sure and arrange a visit at 11 a.m. on Sunday for the Changing of the Guard. If traveling with children be sure you have info concerning the uniforms--very interesting ---even for older people!!!

The changing of the Guard was worth seeing but not wonderful. Amusing at best. Lots of birds arond that land on people watching the show. Interesting and unusual uniforms. The changing of the guards did not take very long and I guess worth seeing once.
