See the best of Athens with a guide, who takes care of navigation and logistics, on this guided tour. Go past city highlights such as the Keramikos Cemetery, Roman Forum, and Ancient Agora, among other ancient monuments. Pedal along bike-friendly paths and streets and cover more ground than if walking, learning the city's rich history as you go.

Our taxi driver to us about the soldiers who mount the guard here and we saw them marching to change over on our trim from the airport, so we had to go back and see the actual changing of the guard. I highly recommend this as a fun and interesting thing to see.

Our first evening we strolled through Ermou and onto Syntagma approaching the great edifice. It looked wonderful in the fading light. Majestic on a height it has had an interesting history. Completed in 1843 as the Royal Palace for Otto the first King of Greece, after fire damage it was renovated over years in the early 20th century. In 1934 having outgrown the Old Parliament building, the Parliament took up residence here. In front of it is the Monument to the Unknown Soldier, a fine memorial. Also present are the famous ceremonial Evzones with their unique costumes.

We were in time to see the hourly changing of the guard and, wow, what an experience. I'm not sure whether I was more in awe of the setting of this in front of the Parliament Building, or of the dedication and discipline of these volunteers. Either way, it was a long drawn-out process, as one set of guards is replaced by another, slowly, routinely and without any facial expressions. Fascinating experience.

We stayed at a hotel overlooking the parliament and had a nice time watching out for the changing of the guards, even during night time.
