Greek Parliament is located in front of Syntagma square and next to the National garden. The most famous aspect is the changing of the guards by the Evzones in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The day began with a tour of the Greek Parliament and the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We waited for the changing, which happens every hour. For some reason on the day we visited the ceremony was abbreviated. I...More

It is old building in the center of Athens, at Syntagma square. In front of the parliament there are 2 special soldiers in national costumes who guard the building. They can not move during that process (their shift). Must see!

Parliament building is just OK. Although it is not a true attraction, any tourist visiting Athens would end up seeing it any way - location, location, location. The most interesting thing is changing of the guards, which is rather unusual, so you may want to...More

The Parlamento Ellenico is a interesting building. The best time to go is when the changing of the guard is taking place. It's a lot of pageantry and ceremonial traditions. It's free and worth seeing.

Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is

are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
