We were a group of travellers from Canada, and stopped for a photo op at the Olympic stadium that was built for the first modern day Olympics in 1896. It is the only stadium in the world completely made of marble. It seats 72,000. Very impressive stadium, with all sorts of interesting structures. Worth a visit if in Athens!

Came here to go and see the AEK olympiacos Derby game. Excellent venue. There might have only been 24000 in attendance but there was a great atmosphere.. I've never seen so many flares and smoke bombs in my life, or heard so many bangers at a football match!! The fans never stopped singing for the whole game. The football itself was poor but I enjoyed the whole occasion

Freaking amazing place. Must see for tourists and locals, but I get a feeling not a lot of tourists come here. On a beautiful, cool Jan day there were families playing, kids skating, and people just hanging out. The Olympic buildings are amazing and a non-stop photo opportunity. There are clean and modern public bathrooms in the Golden Mall. Come here and prepare to talk lots of photos. Drive or take the Athens Metro.

Enjoyed a mini tour of the massive Olympic Stadium which hosted the 2004 Olympics. Me and my family were ones of a very small amount of people who got to go into the stadium, learn about the history of the stadium and its situation after the financial crisis in Greece for example. The man showing us the stadium was very kind and very educated in what he did. After showing us around the stadium, we got souvenirs! It was a very unique experience and the potential of the stadium as one od Athens' main tourist sites is huge. If you ever do come to Athens, do visit the stadium as it is a valuable site to see.

I love the Olympics and for the 16 days it's on the rest of the world ceases to exist. With that in mind it was bitter sweet coming here. On positive it was cool to visit the home of 2004 Olympics but in the negative you can see the neglect; with the knowledge of what happened to Greek Economy in years to follow you can't help but think White elephant. At least the main the Olympic stadium is still in use and if I had a chance I definitely would have attended a game.

The Athens Olympic Park is worth the visit because of the interesting and well-known design made by the famous Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It has all the characteristics of his work and you can still enjoy the beauty of the parabolic arch at the entrance and other structures. But, sadly, the whole complex is not in the best shape, rusty and mostly abandoned...

I had the chance to see the work in progress, during the construction period of this beautiful sport center, in view of and meant for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. I had the pleasure to be one of the thousand volunteers during the Games and I was serving first in the Tennis Ceter and after in the main Stadium. What an experience! Fantastic feelings, thanks to the people (spectators, athlets, volunteers) and to this super good Center, designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava.
Unfortunately, now it is partially abandoned to its own destiny (very poor maintenace). The main active part is the central stadium, where football matches are regularly played. Nevertheless, a visit to the complex is worth, to see these immense spaces and architectures and get inspirations for great photos.

To be visited just to understand how Greek people didn't take the possibility to use this as a way to improve their sport skills. It's quite sad to see something that should have lasted for years and years and should have helped the improvement of Greek sport left almost abandoned. Still interesting so definetely to be advised.

I remember the agony Greece went through to get this stadium finished for the 2004 games. Unfortunately, I never made it there for the games. 10 years on and this was my first visit. What a depressing site. Almost derelict and terribly neglected. Graffiti, rubbish, broken features, rusty steelwork, dead trees and the list goes on.... I suspect the financial crash and most certainly greek politics have a lot to do with it. What happened to pride? What a shame and what a waste....
