Constructed in 4th Century B. C, the Panthenaic Stadium is reclaimed to have hosted some of the most significant events in Athens. With a series of reconstructions since then, this stadium has become one of the best preserved stadiums from ancient Greece. Today, it can be utilized as a proper stadium in the city. This wonderful marble structure is certainly one of the must-see sights in Athens.
The Stadium was built in the valley between two hills in the ancient times. The oblong shape of the place has been retained while making it better equipped for its modern use. The many rows of stairs that stretch across the stadium can accommodate a whopping 45,000 spectators today. But what is even more impressive is that it could accommodate around 80,000 in 1896 when it was renovated for the Olympics.

Only €5 and comes with a free audio guide. Climb to the top of the stadium and enjoy the excellent view onto the track. I would love to watch live sport here!
Even though it is a modern reconstruction you can not help being amazed of the former glory this please mus have held back in the days. The stadium will give you a feeling of how giant marble buildings looked like and how Athens once was. Full of marble buildings. Walking distance from acropolis, so well worth a visit.
I didn’t think I’d spend as much time as I did here. The forty-minute audio guide was actually done very well and time whizzed by. I also did not know that every torch used in every Olympic game is housed and displayed here. Well worth the 5 Euros - not to be skipped!
Absolutely brilliant and a must visit when in Athens. Within your ticket fee you get a little telephone that guides you through the history of the stadium which is really informative. Be sure to do a lap round before stepping up to the podium!
Very cool site to visit. Even though it's empty apart from tourists there is a real historic atmosphere. Well worth the 5 euro entrance fee.
