The next stop will be the Temple of the Olympian Zeus (the largest temple in Hellenic and Roman times), the Panathenian Stadium (the stadium of the first Olympic Games in 1896), the Memorial of the Unknown Soldier and the Changing of the Guards (Euzones) in front of the Greek Parliament, opposite the Syntagma or Constitutional Square. After that, you will see the Trilogy of Athens (the Academy, the First University of Athens and the National Greek Library) and finally, Lycabettus Hill (the highest point of Athens) and don't forget to take some pictures to remember in your mind and heart the entire city.
