Located on Syntagma Square, looks amazing, with traditionaččy dressed soldiers Evzoni in front of it. They are also touristic attraction, 24 hours a day tourists are making photos beside them

All we did was go to watch the changing of the guards. It was a fun touristy experience! I didn't think the building was really much to look at so I would just recommend going on the hour to watch the guards.

Basically it is just the parliament located on a noisy square. There is also some catch with the pigeons as hundreds of them are coming there. There some nice history about that place. The guards are changing every hour.

Really impressive, stunning building to see in Syntagma Square which is a lovely area. Unfortunately didn't see the changing of the guard. Definitely go and visit!

A nice place for a photo-op, the Parliament building offers you the crowd-attracting change of guard and a good vantage point for trips on foot in all directions to various attractions of the city!

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
