You will then continue on to the House of the Greek Parliament, the Monument to the Unknown Soldier and watch the changing of the guards.
Your tour continues towards the National Gardens and onto the beautiful neoclassical Zappeion Hall, in front of which tower the surviving columns of the Zeus Temple and Hadrian’s  Arch, both of which you will have the opportunity to visit. From there you walk towards the Acropolis through the beautiful pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou.
