It gives a spirit of the Olympic Games. It is of course renovated, but looks like original. Now basically used for he concerts and soldiers gymnastics. Good place to take pictures

We called here on a coach tour of Athens; such an amazing place, quite apart from the ancient and more recent history; well worth a visit.

The first every Olympic arena is a site to see for sure! But, there's not much to do there besides take a few pics. The fact that the Romans rebuilt the arena out of marble really lets it withhold the hands of time. The arena...More

A most impressive construction to be sure, and something that I would call must see. The structure of the stadium seems simple in itself, but as you walk around you get a feel for the little touches, which the free audio guide also explains. Walking...More

The place is huge, honestly the scale of it is quite staggering. We almost stumbled across this as our friend had taken us through the parks on a walk. The trees open out to reveal the amazing sight of the stadium. Not too busy around...More

This stadium has held 3 olympics and is made out of marble. Worth looking at. The first modern olympics was held here.

The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first
modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to

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
