Then, head to the Roman-era Temple of Olympian Zeus. Next, continue to the National Garden and pause outside the Hellenic Parliament. Admire the Changing of the Guard, which happens every hour. Stroll up the slopes of the ancient citadel to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis, home to spectacular buildings dating back to the peak of Athens’ power: the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, and so much more.
