It's a unique stadium because is made of white marble before almost 100 years! It is situated in the center of Athens near Zappeion gardens so you can combine the visit of stadium with a nice stroll in the gardens just opposite of the stadium.

Just an enormous place with seats for 80000 people. Very clean almost clinical. Not archeological interesting. The museum which is all about Olympic Games is interesting when you want to buy advert posters of years ago. You haven’t much missed if you skip a visit.

Unfortunately we didn't attend an event there. There should be a seating chart to help you make a selection.

Yes there is a park nearby. Not the nicest area of the city but I didn’t feel it was dangerous
