This was far more interesting than we had expected. It seems that many coach tours stop here for a brief photo-stop but it definately deserves more time than this; we spent nearly 2 hours there! Very good audio guide (12 or so stops around the...More

Spent a couple of hours around the stadium and took advantage of opportunity to pose in winner’s position. Not a sport fan at all but overwhelmed by magnificence of stadium.

I have always dreamed of being there. With a low ticket (5 euro) you can walk in the most iconic Olympic stadium ever built.

The stadium is worth two peeks - one by day and the other by night! The former gives you a measure of the place and the latter tells you how beautifully it can be done up!!

This is a not to be missed attraction in Athens. The small entry fee includes audio guide. Everyone is focused on the ancient sites so this is something different.

The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first
modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to
the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of
Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy
main roads and residential streets will give you a
clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like.
A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west
side of the stadium will bring you past the First

I recommend the bus or walking. Traveling by car in Athens is stressful and unnecessary.
