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.

Panathenaic Stadium, Athens Reviews
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.
Bellissimo stadio! Consiglio di andarci a vedere qualche evento, se vi capita. Potete vederlo gratuitamente da fuori o entrare pagando un biglietto. Wonderful stadium! I recommend going there to see some event, if it happens. You can see it for free from outside or enter by paying a ticket.
Confessedly this one was not high on my list of things to see in Athens. It should be on yours. After two days of seeing ruins and trying to imagine what they might have looked like back in their hayday, the stadium delivers just that. It has been remarkably restored. I've never seen so much white marble gleaming in the sun in my life. The audio tour is informative and blessedly short and manageable. While we were there some trainers were tormenting tourists on the track by making them participate in ridiculous "field day" like events (this was a separate tour which I wish I'd know about!). It was a great afternoon sitting in the stands, laughing and cheering them on. Highly suggested!
Magnificent! How can words describe the feeling of standing in the home to the first modern Olympic games? Run one round of the track and give yourself a big clap! Go in the evening (around 6pm). If you do not want to buy a ticket to get in, you can easily take a photo from outside.
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.
