Please note that this is a page on the Old Opera ("Olympia" Theatre), NOT the Stadium of the 1896 Olympics! And yes, the Opera is a wonderful place, we love it and we always enjoy it.

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
