Visit the on-site Olympic Museum to learn more about the history of this venue. It is constructed entirely from white marble and built on the site of an ancient Greek stadium.
The Panathenaic Stadium is one of the oldest stadiums in the world. It hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 and has seating to accommodate 45,000 spectators.
The stadium is nestled in a forest approximately 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) east of the Acropolis, and is often overlooked by the crowds.
It is open for viewing every day. Mornings and evenings are the best times to visit the stadium in summertime, because the marble at the site can get very hot. Be sure to bring some water and sun protection if you visit in summer, as there is very little shade available. The stadium café is open daily and offers light refreshments until the afternoon.
Reach the stadium via the metro or bus. Syntagma, Acropolis and Evangelismos metro stations are all within half a mile (0.8 kilometers) of the stadium.
