Not a lot to see. But do go on the hour. This is when you can see the changing of the guard. The march is unusual with much ceremony.

This is the backdrop to the hourly changing of the guard and sits above the tomb of the unknown soldier.

This is an attractive building which you can see from Syntagma square. It looks good when it is lit up at night. You can see the guards in the national dress.

It is just the parliament. A lot of noise from the cars, a lot of pigeons. I don't know. I live in Athens and I am sick of it.

Though it is impossible to visit Athens without seeing the Parliament, this is in many ways just a big building on the main square of the city. Not particularly beautiful, not particularly well maintained, not particularly memorable - and visits are not allowed and you...More

Make sure you get there on the hour to see the changing of the guard it's definitely a spectacle to see. The backdrop of Parliament House adds to the pomp and ceremony of the event

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,
