Athens Olympic Stadium Reviews & Ratings
Shame to see such a excellent Calatrava building degrading so much!
One of the most modern and the biggest sports stadium in Greece. It was built to host the Olympic Games in Athens 2004. It has a capacity of 60000. Good access and parking facilities are provided only if you arrive early prior to an athletic event. Especially for football parking can be troublesome, so be warned. The facilities remain open for the crowd and anyone who may wish to use the surrounding park for running.
15 minutes from the center of Athens, a nice place to visit, still in use for some sporting events.
It's a fantastic Stadium Renovated for the 2004 Olympic Games In good condition and easy to located available parking and rechargeable with the Green metro line
