“3 euros well spent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Beautiful marble stadium, first modern Olympics held here in 1896, and where else can you see a collection of posters and Olympic flames from all modern Olympics. Brilliant

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

It's huge and you get a real historical vibe-also, they give you personal pre-recorded radios which tell you about the various sectors of the stadium. If you go through the big white gate that the athletes used to come down through and up the stairs at the end of the walkway, you see all the Olympic torches which have been lit from this stadium. Really cool-I'd definitely recommend it-especially only for 3€ or 1.50€ as a student :-D

“The best 3 euros you will ever spend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

You must visit this great place. Free audio tour which is excellent. Make sure you go up the tunnel to the building beyond to see the torches from every Olympiad.

“A small fee, but a cool place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

I thought this was a good place to see with a group of athletes from school! There really isn't that much to see (you can see most of it externally without paying the fee) but cool to climb to the top and take photos around it. If you've got some extra time, then definitely fit it in! :)

“Run in the foosteps of Olympians”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Excellent viist and the audio guide is built into the price. You can run/walk on the track which hosted the 1896 Olympics and it is worth visiting the cave to see the small Olympic museum.
