The site is guarded by those soldiers and shirts! You've seen pictures, but now you can watch their precision. Guard changes every hour.

This is only interesting, because it's gaurded by the special gaurds of Greece. Their changing of the guards is very interesting to watch.

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,
