The Panathenaic Stadium in my opinion is one of the top attractions of Athens , not so much for its historical importance like it may be the Acropolis and some other temple around the city, but it is a spot of the highest importance, here is the place indeed where the modern Olympics Game started . This stadium is 10... More

This is a must visit site in Athens. The stadium itself is incredible. It is worth paying the 3 Euros to go in. You then get to go into the tunnel the competitors used and get to see the museum with all the Olympic torches in. We spent over an hour inside, good value for money

100% marble construction. You can see it well from outside and do not have to buy a ticket necessarily unless you want to climb the stairs. A stadium with true history. When you do the Marathon of Athens you finish here and will never forget it.

This place was really interesting. It costs 3 euros to enter and you get a free audio guide. It was really informative about the whole Olympic Games origins and development and the audio coverage helped to really bring the place to life.

The stadium is definitely worth a visit. The cost of entry is very reasonable and they also supply an audio guide. You can walk up to the back row, sit in the royal seats and even race each other on the track!! It is very atmospheric, you can really imagine the ancient games taking place before you. There is also... More

Regardless whether your a sports fan or not, it's a must. It's only about 10 minutes away from the acropolis and is open for much longer than the acropolis. The fare isn't included in the 'all in one' but it's worth every extra cent. They also offer a free audio guide which was really good. It takes you back to... More

It`s hard to believe in a place like this. You have to go there. It`s a 20 minute walk from the city centre. Don`t forget your picture at the podium.
