Athens Changing of the Guard

We will be arriving in Athens on a Sun. morning and want to try to see the ceremony. The timing is going to be very tight and we will have luggage with us. Can anyone give me detailed directions for getting to the ceremony? We plan on taking either the metro or the express bus into the city from the airport. Thanks

Either the 95 bus or the blue line metro will take you right to Syntagma.

when i was there it was most interesting to see them put final touches on around the corner from the entrance and "follow" them as they marched from around the corner to the front.
they change guards and then there are always guards in front, i BELIEVE.

it was not a long ceremony, if i recall.
