Watch the Changing of The Guard

This is one of the best things to do in Athens. You must be in Athens on a Sunday if you want to see this weekly event. The Parliament Building in Syntagma is the location of the Changing of the Guard. It starts at 11:00 am and is open to the public.

While the guards do rotate every hour, the ritual is more elaborate and there are more guards on duty on Sundays at 11:00 than usual. They also wear the traditional Greek uniform. In Athens, Sundays are the ideal day to witness the changing of the guard. They are actually highly skilled troops known as the Evezone, despite their somewhat peculiar appearance. One of the best free activities in Athens is this.

This city tour not only includes stops at Athens’s top attractions to visit the Acropolis, Parthenon, Nike Temple, and more, but you’ll also see other lesser-known sites. Meet in the city center at the House of Parliament and see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the National Garden, Zeus Temple, and Hadrians’s Arch while you learn of the first Olympic Games and ancient Greek History.

Time: 11:00 am
Entrance fee: free
