The Evzones, or Evzoni, (Greek: Εύζωνες, colloquially: tsoliades / τσολιάδες) is the name of several historical elite light infantry and mountain units of the Greek Army. Today, it refers to the members of the Proedriki Froura (Presidential Guard), an elite ceremonial unit that guards the Greek Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (Άγνωστος Στρατιώτης), the Hellenic Parliament and the Presidential Mansion.

The hosting takes place at 8am and the lowering one hour before sunset. Depending on the time of the year, at these times the Acropolis may be closed to the public so this is generally a rare sighting.
