Panathenaic Stadium - Review

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.

One of the largest stadiums in Greece, Panathenaic is popular attraction for sports lovers and folks alike. You can enter the stadium by paying certain Panathenaic Ticket Prices at the counter. You can even roam the surrounding in the morning if you wish to. Students and visitors coming to Buy Tickets for Panathenaic get a little concession on Panathenaic Ticket Cost.

  • Beautiful stadium, I would definitely not advise going at the time we went which was just after lunch in the blazing sun as it's so hot from all of the marble (maybe go in the morning or the evening), but that was our mistake! You can't appreciate how amazing it is until you go in though! There's also a mini museum inside where they showcase all of the torches from precious games and all of the accompanying posters per country. It's only 5€ entry and I think it's definitely worth it, especially if you're on a hop on hop off bus.

  • Historical place. First modern Olympics game was held here in 1896. The whole stadium is made of marble stone. You need to buy a ticket to enter into the stadium. Otherwise you can have great view of the stadium from the front side of it. And it's free of cost. Still I recommend to buy a ticket, enter into it and observe closely the history of modern Olympic.

  • If you are not that interested in sports, like me, don’t wast your time and money to go there. That’s a massive place honestly, but there nothing much to see. 5€ to walk there was not worth it. I recommend to sit back and enjoy the view of the stadium outside the “pay area”. There is a coffee shop and a souvenir market too. It is a good 25 minutes walk from Syntagma Square so think about it before taking this walk ;)

  • Stopped by on a hot afternoon after a tiring morning in Sounion and Acropolis, which were awe-inspiring. It was a memorable stop as the children got a chance to run on the tracks and pretend they were competing in a race. Luckily we had sports shoes on that day. The steps to the seats were amazingly high and I wondered how tall the Greeks were in those days. The stadium was rather small but compact but we could feel the excitement of those days gone by.

  • Unique Greek stadium. Original Marathon event terminates here. Hosts important ceremonies. Created by huge rocks. Atmospheric and beautiful at the same time
