Even though it’s far from the center, I was very happy that I decided to go. We were several so we took an Uber, which is faster than the metro, but if you have time the metro is ok. It’s an abandoned park, all conceived...More

We went for an AEK Championship game on a weekday. The stadium can be seen far away and it’s awesome architecture is equally admirable near by. The traffic was really bad and it took an hour by taxi to the stadium from downtown Athens. Atmosphere...More

This once beautiful Olympic site is now, to a large extent, abandoned and falling apart. Some of the stadiums are still intact and, I assume, still in use but the overall area is depressing to see. One bright spark is that some construction seems to...More

The Athens Olympic Park is worth the visit because of the interesting and well-known design made by the famous Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It has all the characteristics of his work and you can still enjoy the beauty of the parabolic arch at the entrance...More

I mean it’s an old Olympic site from 2004. Of course some things are in disrepair and run down but what do you expect really. It’s not bad and worth the $2 subway ride out from Piraeus.

An accessible stadium. Enjoyed it. It's not the home of my team, but I visited it many times as an away fan. Sometimes we also have there concerts of known artists.

This place was very disappointing. It was almost completely abandoned and uncared for. We wandered through the complex and envisioned what it must have looked like 13 years earlier full of people from all over the world. So sad that the country went to such...More
