This will not be in my top 10 places to visit in Athens but we had a spare time until our flight, and it was a day that everything was closed in the morning due to a Maraton that was conducted.

Such a beautiful garden. You can stroll for hours and never tire of the environment. Very easy access, right behind the Parliament building. Lots of greenery to enjoy along with the ducks and turtles and beautiful flowers, too! They even offer espressos. One of the...More
The National Garden is right behind the Parliament. It’s a green - the green - oasis right in the heart of Athens. The perfect place to relax during a hot and sunny athenian sightseeing day. Just grab a ”Koulouri Thessalonikis” before entering through the gate...More
We walked through (all around?) this park because it was so convenient-----right across from our hotel and near the Parliament building. There are paths all over and wildlife galore, e.g., plants, birds, squirrels, and even a family zoo-like area with goats, very large rabbits, etc....More
Imagine that you can find a refuge of therapeutic greenery in the heart of the city of Athens FOR FREE .. This is the National Garden of Athens. It is a must not only when it's your first time to visit the city, but whenever...More
Yes, it's October, but the weather still feels like summer so we expected to see flowers in the National Garden. There weren't any; they had apparently been pulled out in preparation for colder weather. The central lake had no water, nor did the fountain. There's...More
This park is located conveniently right behind the Parliament Building. The park is quite large with a labyrinth of trails. It is very well maintained with very large trees, accented by sitting area, a bird viewing area, pond, playground, and pergolas. Definitely worth a visit.
There are entry points into the gardens on the East, West and South.
The gardens are quite large and pathways meander around it, Mainly of tall trees with areas of shrubery with a small lake with a wooden bridge, a small aviary and goat enclosure....More
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,
bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
Hi Seraphina, I was at the National Garden at the end of May, so I don't know whether it's been reopened (and also hadn't heard that it had been closed). Changing of the guard nearby is fun just in case, as is the nearby... More
Hi Seraphina, I was at the National Garden at the end of May, so I don't know whether it's been reopened (and also hadn't heard that it had been closed). Changing of the guard nearby is fun just in case, as is the nearby Metro stop's exhibit of artifacts.

Good evening from Athens.The National Gardens are in the centre of the city,at the Syntagma square. Wherever you are,if there is metro station you can take it and get off the Syntagma station,also there is connection with tram.If you are in airport,just take the bus number x95,and get off the terminal station on Syntagma square.
Besides the National Gardens there is Plaka district,fee meters away from Syntagma,you can enjoy a walk and do some shopping.Have a coffee or ice cream, or meal if you want,there are lots of cafés. There is also Zeus Temple, you can visit it.
I hope I helped you.If you have another questions, don't hesitate to ask.Kind regards.
