We continue with the Hadrian’s Gate which spanned an ancient road from the center of Athens to the complex of structures on the eastern side of the city that included the Temple of Zeus. Next to Hadrian’s Gate is the Temple of Zeus which is a colossal ruined temple in the center of Athens that was dedicated to Zeus, king of the Olympian gods. The Panathinaikos Stadium, also known as the Kallimarmaro (meaning the “beautifully marbled”), is a multi-purpose stadium used for several events and athletics in Athens that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Our next sight is the Parliament where we are going to see the changing of the guards. It is performed by Evzones, the name of several historical elite light infantry and mountain units of the Greek Army.
