This was one of the most interesting parts of our tour of Athens. It is definitely worth it to make a stop here. I do not recommend paying to go inside it because I feel you can see and experience most of it from the outside.

Took the advice of my hotel to walk down to the old part of Athens and so pleased I did. When to get to the stadium the sheer size and beauty hits you. It's only 5 euros to get in and you get a free walking audio tour with that. Great to just sit and relax along one of the... More

The original Olympic stadium, at first I was hesitant whether to pay and go in or not as you can see most of the stadium from the outside but decided to go in as it was only 3 or 4 Euros. So What did I get for my Euro's - You got an audio guide which tells you about the... More

This place gives you a true sense of stepping back to Ancient Greece. The setting is quite unique and the design enables full access to this amazing setting. Well worth a visit and only costs a few Euros. Don't miss a photo opportunity on top of the winners podium.

It is a neat stadium but we were finished looking at it within 10 minutes. They didn't let us go inside so you just look at it from outside of the stadium. There may be tours of it but we didn't see any offers while we were there.

We visited this and was amazed with the beauty and magnificence of this stadium. The small shop had a wide variety of information guides and we bought a beautiful book that cost 25 Euros but worth every penny

If you're looking for a majestic place for a stroll or a run, enter from the top via the back entrance. My husband ran 6 km everyday when we lived nearby. Lots of tortoises everywhere, too

Normal entry charge is Euros3, but seniors can get in for Euros 1.50 and that includes the use of an audio guide set. The audio guide was very comprehensive and it would be possible to miss the room with all the Olympic torches and posters without it. From the top level of the stadium there is a good view of...

We stopped here as part of our On and Off Bus tour. It was nice to see and is where the marathon ends, both in ancient times and today. There is a small fee to actually enter the stadium, you can stand outside of it and look in for free.
