We had a short stop here since it was quite expensive to enter this site even though it was empty and unused at the time.

It's great to be able to sit in and experience being in the first modern Olympic stadium! There is a free self guided audio tour that gives you the history of the place and helps you picture yourself being there during the Olympics! Also make sure to go inside the tunnel where the athletes came out of and go upstairs... More

This is another wonderful Athens attraction. It was the host stadium of the first modern Olympics in 1896 and also used for some events at the 2004 games. But it's history dates back 2,000 years. For the full experience I recommend the self-guided audio tour which gives you a full history and helps guide you in sequence all over the... More

Seriously, you have to pay 5 Euro to visit the Panathenaic Stadium? This place is silly for two reason. 1. It is only two thirds complete. Imagine a Mexican wave, it would only go around the stadium once. 2. The stadium is only half the width as a normal athletics stadium. In any athletics race, the runners would have to... More

Greece was our last stop in our European trip the summer of 1972 when I was a junior in college. I loved the history of ancient Greece and wanted to experience it for myself. We sailed to Athens from Brindisi, Italy, where we slept on deck b/c we couldn't afford the cabins-we were thrifty! The Parthenon was amazing-we took pics... More

Very interesting to see. Nicely built stadium for the Olympics . Close to a lot of attractions. Take the bus tour. You have headphones and can get off the bus to check out sites, then catch another bus later. Our pass was good for two days. The bus takes you all over the city to the sites and explains what...

Very impressive stadium made of stone and held 68,000 people. Really nice photo ops. Also walk into the tunnel that leads the way to some interesting pics and articles about the stadium and then a bit further inside the have the torches from most of the previous Olympics on display
