For sports enthusiasts, there is nothing like the Panathenaic Stadium. People travel from around the world to awe at the feat of the Athletes so many years ago. The awe of building a stadium that so far has withstood bad weather and earthquakes, including the...More

Being an athlete myself I found this place very very interesting indeed. Hard to believe the first Olympics were here in 1896. Its just a stadium but it holds a lot of sporting history. If you are any way sports minded go here.

This is well worth a visit to see the all marble stadium made for the modern Olympic Games. It was open on New Years Day and one of the few to do so. Well worth the 5€ to go inside and walk around freely. The...More

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

I recommend the bus or walking. Traveling by car in Athens is stressful and unnecessary.
