"Tomb of the unknown soldier" Syntagma Square - Parliament Tip by mvtouring

Syntagma Square - Parliament, Athens: 79 reviews and 148 photos


Just to the northeast of the Plaka and right across the street from Syntagma Square is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Its location right doesn't make it the most peaceful place in Athens, but it is conveniently located within walking distance of the city's major attractions and therefore should not be missed. Try to go when the changing of the guard takes place so you can witness this interesting ceremony. I just love the guys in their off-white mini?s.
