Syntagma Square

           

While in Athens, I could not miss visiting Syntagma Square which is a beautiful square located in heart of the capital. The architecture is a mixture of neoclassical elements and exotic ottoman touches. In the east you can find the Greek Parliament surrounded by the awe inspiring National Gardens which are open to the public. The Parliament is guarded 24/7 by the Presidential Guard, every hour there is a wonderful ceremony for the changing of the guards. The ancient agora and Parthenon are also at a walking distance so make sure you allow sufficient time and plan your itinerary accordingly.

I would advise you to dress comfortably when visiting the square as you will need to do a lot of walking around. I personally chose a pair of white skinny trousers and a ruffled floral crop bustier from the Spring Summer 2014 Mademoiselle Epaulette collection, I paired my outfit with Chanel espadrilles and aviator shades, then all that was left to do was to grab my favorite Chanel bag and my brightest mood.

It was a wonderful summer’s day and the square was buzzing with life. The statues and imposing buildings offer an amazing enlightening experience as you witness the diversity of cultures that have settled in the ancient Athenian square. I will always cherish the memories I have gathered in the city of Plato and Socrates, if you want to get a better taste of my stay in Athens just visit the official Instagram account @remisabbah…
