Syntagma Square is located in the very heart of the city, in front of the 19th centaury Old Royal Palace which is a house to a Greek Parliament these days. The square itself is a very important
place for Athenians, from both – historical and social point of view. Lovely fountain and trees welcome tourists with much desired shade, especially in the summer. In front of the Parliament, Presidential Guards in their boots with pom poms and of course
in a perfect synchronization, change guard every hour. It is without doubt, one of the biggest attractions so make sure your camera is ready. Syntagma Square is linked with pedestrians’ only Ermou Street which is a heaven to all shopaholics,
so make sure you have an extra time allocated to explore some shops.
