The tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a part of the parliament building guarded by guards wearing traditional clothing and changing shifts every 1- 2 hours in front of the Parliament. Great location and a must visit place while in Athens.

We were on a day tour of Athens on a med cruise, and our guide stopped in time for the Changing of the Guards ceremony. This ended up being a highlight of our day. Since we were the first group to arrive, we were allowed to go up one at a time and take our picture with one of the... More

The tomb of the unknown solider is located right in front of the Hellenic parliament. I don't understand why people are posting reviews stating what the soldiers are doing and what they are wearing is comical... Its flat out rude. If you are touring around the city and are able to check out the changing of the guards come check... More

This is right in front of the parliament building in Syntagma Square. If in Athens you are almost certain to pass here at least once during any visit. Try to visit this at the time of the guards changing, when you can view not only the tomb but also the very impressive ceremony. Only takes 10 minutes of your time... More

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is an impressive monument. We were fortunate to see the Changing of the Guards. The ceremony was very solemn and interesting. If you miss the ceremony, you will be able to see the guards at their posts.

You are very disrespectful!!!!!! So, I guess if you visit Arlington Cemetery in the USA where they have the exact same scenario, you would find that "slightly comical" too would you? You are an IDIOT! If you cannot respect the the country you are visiting then just stay at home!

Absolutely a must see in Athens. The stern-faced elite Evzones guards may look comical in their silly- looking uniforms. But don't let that distract you from their well-choreographed pomp and circumstance. The whole ritual is very enjoyable to watch.

If you are in Athens on a Sunday there is a full changing of the guard complete with marching band at 11:00 which was very interesting to see. Go early and find a spot way to the left as you are facing the monument. We didn't and as the guards were moving people over we got farther and farther away.... More
