Tour Details

The slightly sloping Syntagma Square (Plateia Syntagmatos = Constitution Square) is located in the heart of modern Athens. It is the central square of Athens and it was named after the Constitution that the first King of Greece Otto was obliged to grant, after a popular and military uprising on 3 September 1843. The eastern side of the square is higher than the western, and dominated by a set of marble steps leading to Amalias Avenue; beneath these lies the Syntagma metro station. Between the  green areas  planted with shade trees, in the center of the square there is a large mid-19th century water fountain.

Quick tour inside the station’s museum. Above the metro station lies the gently sloping Syntagma square, the most popular meeting point of the Capital. Above and behind the Syntagma square is the National Parliament Building (Vouli). A stop there to see the Monument of the Unknown Soldier which is guarded 24 hours a day by two “Evzoni”, members of the Presidential Guard, an elite unit of the Greek Army. After watching the changing of the Guards, the walk continues in front of the Presidential Palace, the official residence of the President of the Hellenic Republic and the Maximos building, the official residence and offices of the Prime Minister of Greece to the next stop, which is the Panathenaic Stadium, home of the first Olympic Games in modern history. Next, we visit the Zeus Temple and Hadrian’s Arch monument from the Roman Era. After that,we will  admire the neoclassical architecture of Zappeion Hall and walk through the National Gardens, a large – shady and enfenced refuge from the Athenian reality.  The tour ends back to the Syntagma metro station.
