One of the best free sightseeing. Great building both at night and day. Soldiers in old national army clothes (which looks funny) bear a guard near the tomb of unknown soldier in front of the building. Hourly rotation is a must see, especially if you...More

Really impressive, stunning building to see in Syntagma Square which is a lovely area. Unfortunately didn't see the changing of the guard. Definitely go and visit!

A nice place for a photo-op, the Parliament building offers you the crowd-attracting change of guard and a good vantage point for trips on foot in all directions to various attractions of the city!

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.

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,
