From there, head toward the city center to Syntagma Square, the Greek Parliament, and the impressive Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the heart of the modern Greek Republic. Following that, enter the most cosmopolitan quarter with its elegant shops and countless dining options. You'll then take the road to the Panathenaic Stadium, which hosted the first modern Olympic Games on their revival in 1896.
