"See the guards at the Athens..." Greece Favorite Tip by Martin_S.

Greece General: 655 reviews and 611 photos


Favorite thing: See the guards at the Athens tomb of the unknown soldier. Or rather see the people who are seeing the guards. The guards themselves are quite impressive being able to stand without moving for so long and their traditional dress is beautiful. The thing that I enjoyed watching though was the tourists. Their reactions around these guards was quite funny, they would make faces and odd movements to see if they could get the guards to move or react,it was better than a comedy show.
