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.Recommended for:

I would recommend visiting on a day when there isn't a protest, but those seem few and far between lately. If you do go, be sure to find out when the guards change their station. Between the uniforms and their march, I thought the changing of the guards in Athens was better than at Buckingham Palace.Recommended for:

Do You know the filling when You see something on TV and You say: "Hey, I was there."
Well i had that filling a few days ago. This place is not that magnificent as the rest of Greece but it does leave a mark in Your brain that when You see it You automaticly know that it is Athens

If you have been watching the news you can see that the protests are usually done in this area. It is the center of the political strife that is going on recently in Greece. They also have the neat guards with the unusual uniforms. You can take your picture with the guard at the little hut. My wife looked like a midget next to him - I don't think of the Greeks being that tall.

Really not that impressive. We were looking for it left and right without realizing that we were right in front of the Parliament Building, because it is so ordinary. There is a little square in front of it and that square is filled with pigeons. I don't remember seeing a whole lot of people hanging around there. I think the most interesting thing we saw there was the guards in traditional Greek army clothing walking around a big. It was quite an underwhelming experience.
