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

I found the stadium to be the best monument to go see. You do not get a grasp of its size and dimension until inside. They actually give you great access to walk the grounds and you can sit in the seats where the kings and queens sat and take photos were the medal winners stood before the crowd. The... More

Stadium is undeniably impressive, but incredibly rude and surly employee ruined the experience for us. Very poor customer service (even by Greek standards).

It is hard to believe a 3 sided 70,000 seater stadium can be bulit entirely of stone. This is an impressive sight with the terracing soaring skyward. This was the sight of the first Olympics of the modern era. I was very impressed.

The ruins of Panathinaiko Stadio are definitely wonderful. It's nice to spend some time when in Athens climbing the stadium and sightseeing over the city..

Ok, so I am an Olympics tragic but this place is great. You get a free self guided audio tour with the (very cheap) entry fee and get to enjoy a few hours of exploring and really taking in this all white marble wonder. Most tourists see it from the outside as a quick photo stop but its well worth... More

Spent an hour here and was truly worth the walk there. A couple of euros to enter but well spent for the education and history

Inspiring and imposing, the stadium was restored for the first Modern Olympics. The Athens Marathon still finishes here, and a few events are still held in it. A dramatic sight, from any angle.
