A quick Athens tour

Athens was the starting and end spot on our Greece tour.
We didnt have much time to roam through Athens, But our target was mostly the Parthenon/Acropolis and the Change of the guard.

Change of Gaurd in front of Parliament, Syntagma

The change of Gaurd happens every day.
There special one happens every Sunday at 11 Am.
They come out in colourful dress and pleated skirts. Pic attached.
Do not miss this.

Temple of Zeus

Stands next to the Parthenon on top of Acropolis.
The Acropolis is a 15 minute leisurely walk from Plaka / Syntagma area.
