All reviews olympic games modern olympics olympic torches audio guide olympic history athens marathon white marble small museum entry fee worth a visit national gardens take pictures ancient times walk around track tunnel podium
Seriously was so shocked that we only paid 5 euros and we had a audio guide, had access to walk all over the stadium including the track & also the small museum in the undergrounds!! my goodness it was a spectacular experience!!!
We have been to the Stadium many times in the past, even to concerts. However every time we are moved by the whole atmosphere. Unfortunately authorities seem to have abandoned the place. It still remains a great monument to visit, especially with children.
A little piece of sport history. Enjoy the atmosphere of ancient Olympic games and dive a bit into the museum experience that shows some milestones of sport history. Highly recommended sight to stop. Entrance fees are 5/2.50 Euros.
This is the place it all started anew , in1896 , and never stopped since -the olympic stadium - that hosted back then the start of a new era . Strong as a symbol should be it is a great stop on the list of...More
If you’re in Athens and have an hour or two to spare we would highly recommend this site. It is within moderate walking distance or couple of bus stops from the city centre and a very peaceful place to wander round, soak in some Olympic...More
The Panathenaic Stadium is right in downtown Athens on a very busy boulevard. It is an impressive stadium built of local stone. It seats about 70,000 and is the sight of the first modern Olympic Games for 1896. It is still in very good shape...More
For only 5 euros you get access to this amazing stadium where you can walk everywhere, even have a run on the track and pretend you are taking part in your own Olympic event. Don't forget to go through the entrance that takes you under...More
We visited this site after we had been to see the Temple of Zeus since it was just a short 10 minute walk away. Admission was 5 Euros and I got a senior citizen reduction of 50%. On the weekday afternoon we visited there were...More
The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First
National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church. Among the standard four- to six-story apartment blocks that typify Athens, Pangrati also boasts some genuinely authentic tavernas and the odd trendy bar.

If I recall correctly, the handheld audioguide tour (which is included with entry fee) takes approx 45 mins to talk you through the various stations around the stadium. My 18yr old daughter and I visited in mid-Dec 2018 and enjoyed it more than we expected. I was glad we took the time to pay the money to visit, rather than just look from the front entrance area.
