An amazing 3,000+ year old structure that represents the start of something truly Global of epic proportions. How many of our modern structures would be able to withstand the test of time like this iconic moment is open to question. Enjoy this on any dry day with a blue sky in Athens.

With my first basketball-game ever. I truly enjoyed it, the people are crazy of their team-Panathinaikos. I was so touched by the people. They all became one! The minor thing is the smell of weed. But its normal, l was glad the hall was not completely full, cause the smell of weed, cigarettes, sweat would not be pleasant. Btw: Panathinaikos... More

You have to marvel at the sheer colossal scale of dereliction that greets you as you walk from the station across the silently decaying remains of the 2004 Olympic site. Figures whirl round in your mind as you try some initial calculations as to how much this gigantic folly has cost. Then you give up as your brain can't do... More

It would be so nice area, but it's in horrible condition in most of the areas and installments. This could be the pearl of Athens for any outdoor event or activity, or maybe markets, street food events etc. There is so much space.
