    You Can't go to Athens without going up to see the Parthenon. It is the focal point of the city and the view dominates where ever you are at. It is fascinating and I would highly reccomend getting a guide. To go up there and not have a clue what you are looking at is defeating the purpose of going ...

A great place for sports fans ( you can run around the track if you can stand the heat) and history buffs. From the marble steps you can even see the Acropolis! Inside there is a room displaying all of the ...

    Fittingly located at the front of the parliament building, the tomb is always well visited. Be sure to come in time for the very entertaining changing of the guard.

    Where else in the world will you find ancient artifacts displayed in the subway station? The small display was very interesting, but doesn't seem to get its due as most people just rush by.

    We also didn't get to go inside the Parliament building, but we did get a chance to see the guards marching in front of Parliament. Definitely something that should be on your to-do list for Athens.

    Visiting just for the changing of the guards is worth it, but there is so much more here. In a lot of ways it feels like the heart of the city.
