Nice little monument but the way in which it is guarded is a bit much for what is really an etching into a wall

THE location to watch the changing of the guards. Beautiful but somber. Get info on the location as well as meaning of the guards uniforms.

This is a must see in Athens. There are highly trained soldiers performing like Monty Python's Ministry of funny walks supervised by an officious sergeant who does crowd control.

I would recommend this when visiting Athens. The changing of the guards is very good and the attire of the guards is of ancient Greece.

Watch the changing of the Gurdians every 2-3 hours. They wear traditional Greek garments and the are called Euzones. It is in front of Greek Parliament near to Syntagma Square, at the centre of Athens.

Located in front of the parliament building and across the bueatiful Syntagma square. Dont miss the soldiers ceremony. especially on Sundays.

Changing of the guards is probably the most interesting attraction on display here. It happens about once an hour, but the one around 11AM is the most interesting.

Thank DincerP
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
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,
