One of highlights of our trip. It was really interesting to be able to walk everywhere in the such a historic stadium. There was also a great collection of Olympic posters and torches.

Good place to visit to get an understanding of how the old stadium used to be. Fully restored but appreciating the effort to keep it close to original.

I couldn't resist the chance to run around the 185 metre track. The marble seating still looks amazing. There is also a portacabin which sells souvenirs. An audio guide is provided as part of the 5 euros entrance charge.

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
