Syntagma (Constitution) Square is home to the Parliament Building, home to the Greek Parliament but once the palace of the Kings of Greece. The Square is also home to the tomb of the unknown soldier and the traditionally dressed, pom-pom toe-ed guards, known as Evzoni. You can see the Changing of the Guard here every hour and if you’ve travelled all the way to Athens it worth hanging around to see the ceremony.
