Very cool to see this and hear the history but felt the view from the hop on hop off bus was enough. My sister did have a chance earlier to get out and see it and encouraged us to hang out and save our steps and some time.

A site worth experiencing. Humbling, well-maintained and a brilliant story to walk through. Really enjoyable.

Compared to other sights, the stadium is not in debris, but rebuilt to it's former splendor. You can almost feel the acient Romans when you enter the stadium. Don't miss!

If u r a fan or not of the Olympics you still need to visit this magnificent stadium home to the origin of modern Olympics. Have a run on it's well maintained track and enjoy the beautiful marble gallery.

This was a really excellent place to visit if you are a fan of The Olympics. It is cheap to go in and was really quiet, with only a handful of people there when we visited on an August afternoon. I would really recommend using the free audio tour as it gives great information and brings the place to life.

Very interesting to see the original olympic stadium, another impressive structure, well preserved. Not open to the public on a regular basis but you can see all of it from the street/viewing area in front.

We were visiting Athens on a cruise ship and this was the first stop on our day trip (which we booked for €25 when we got off the ship). We didn't pay the €6 to go inside, it was just a quick walk around and photo stop which we were happy with. Nice to see briefly and if you're really... More

The history is amazing, the marble stands are incredible and its hard to believe just how old the place is when you consider that they held the first Olympics here. You must pay the 3 euros and experience the atmosphere of the stadium - you will love it and get on the track.....

Make sure you go when the sun isn't too hot...and make sure you get the audio guide and follow along. It's not to long of an audio tour and it gives some really cool information. It shouldn't take you more than hour to see this and totally worth it!

If you are into sports and history, this is the place for you. Newly refurbished to its former glory the stadium looks stunning. You can climb upto the back seats or walk on the track. There is also a tunnel at the back to the old changing rooms and further info on the old stadium which was used for the... More
