Marvel at the landmarks of Syntagma Square, home to the Greek Parliament, and watch the Changing of the Guards ceremony. See the traditional uniform of the elite Evzone guards in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Next, get some shade as you walk through the National Garden and see the neoclassical facade of Zappeion Hall. Learn about the home of the first modern Olympic Games at the Panathenaic Stadium, and then continue along Dionysiou Areopagitou Street to enter the historic Plaka district.

Make your way to the south slope of the Acropolis and get a perfect view of the remains of the Theatre of Dionysus.
