One of the landmarks in Athens. Would definitely recommend finding tickets to one of the events that happen there during the summer.

A famous sight for every visitor of Athens! In 1896 the first modern Olympic Games were organised in this Stadium. In this historic Stadium Spyros Louis, the Greek Marathon runner won in the first Authentic Marathon race after the revival of the Olympic Games.
