I guess that something that has such history attached to it has to be worthwhile visiting, and this is no exception. However, we did find that, although there is so much history invested in it, it's not really the greatest tourist venue. I have to...More

It's well worth the 5 euro to stop and check out this site. The audio tour is awesome and full of surprises. I really enjoy wandering around the track and imagining what it would have been like to compete as an athlete as well as...More

This is a great place but not a lot to tour. We paid the admission and walked around for a little while. It was a hot day so that absolutely played a part of why we weren't as enthused. It is one of the many...More

Visited here today and would not go back. It literally is the most dullest part in all of Athens. Entry cost is €5 to walk on some steps and that is pretty much it. Really isn't much more I can say about this. Looks nice...More

"The" original stadium of the olympic games - well, at least of those of the new era. Here one can feel how olympic games must have looked like before the Coca Cola Company and CNN took over, using the event as useful frame for merchandising......More

Hard to believe, this is entirely made os marble. It's horseshoe shape is kind of strange compared to modern stadiums; however it allows to be viewed from the open side even if you don't want to go inside.

I would highly suggest visiting this site. The marble stadium is beautiful. Tours are available during the day.

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
