Good piece of history

During my Athens trip, I took a walking tour and part of it got a chance to see Olympia Theater. Its in excellent condition (restored) and a must visit.

Anyone interested in the Olympic Games this is a must see in the centre of Athens so easy to visit only €5 euro entry and has an audio tour which we did not do. Amazing to think that c70000 people could sit in the area built in the 19th century. There is also a hall with all the Olympic torches

You an view the stadium from the open end. There isn't a huge amount to see, it is after all just a stadium but it is large and impressive and again, it's the sense of history which really makes the visit. Worth visiting if you are in Athens.

Took my children and grandchildren here as this is the original Olympic stadium . It has been carefully restored to its former glory with a great history behind it as described on the free handset you get with the entrance fee . Well worth a visit back in time .

Very relaxed here, you're allowed to scramble all over the site and race track. Great little museum part too which takes pride in the history of the modern olympics. My kids loved it here.

Great to visit the home of the modern Olympics. The stadium is made from marble get the audio guide to explain everything. Got a great museum about the Olympics since 1896.

I really enjoyed to see the theather and I found myself imagining how the Olimpic games were done in the past. I recommend you to get the audioguide - it shows you architetonic details and try to recriate the atmosphere of the old times. All made by marble, it is a beautiful place to do if you are into sports.

Hard to believe that this place is made out of all marble. The workmanship is beautiful. Worth a quick stop.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
