Go back in time!

for 3 euros you have access to a magnificent stadium built on the site of a venue over 2,000 years old. The audio tour is the best way to view the stadium.

Our daughter suggested that we visit the Panatheniac Stadium and we were delighted that we did. The small entrance fee includes an audio guide which is informative and concise. You can sit in the seats, walk on the track and absorb the historic atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Hard to see how some reviewers feel the 3 Euro entrance fee is too much and go to the stadium just to look from the outside, when the tour is really enjoyable and one of our highlights of visiting Athens. The small price of a ticket gives you a free audio guide that details the history of the Olympic games,... More

It s so perfect in it a design. You know the age, but you can t believe it. For a small fee you can walk the track, climb or sit anywhere. Pretend to hear the Roar of sixty thousand. Water and drink here. WC for 1/2 eu. No words can do it justice.

Pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed my visit to the first Olympic stadium. Whilst you can a decent enough view without paying its well worth it to immerse yourself in the stadium, check the view from the top rows, run on the track (if your a fitness fanatic!) and stand on an Olympic podium for 3 Euro. The real... More

Beautiful marble stadium right in the centre of Athens, close to Syntagma Square & The National Gardens. You are permitted to run round the track & walk round the top.

The place where the first modern Olympic games took place. Close to other big attractions like the Acropolis, and so on walking distance. By the way, in Athens most atrractions are on walking distance. I did not enter the stadium as for me it was sufficient to see it from the outside, which was impressing and it only takes about...

Cut into the hill the stadium was built for the 1896 first modern Olympics. Cheap to enter you are allowed to wander around on your own including the tunnel for the contestants which leads to a room with lots of Olympic flames from previous games. About an hour is enough to visit.

It was interesting to see it, but I was not going to pay to walk around the inside of it. Outside, there is a souvenir shop and a little shop where you can get coffee, snacks, etc. It was quite large and impressive and near other attractions [Acropolis, etc] . As I stood there [outside of it] I wondered what... More

This is one of the best places that i visited in Athens i wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. Its massive when you approach it and when you are walking you feel like a star of the past. The place was just mind-blowing and i enjoyed every minute of it, if you go through the tunnel... More
