I visited the stadium on eve of Athens Marathon so emotional to see the original location for modern Olympic movement. Well worth the walk through the extensive national gardens from the parliament to watch changing of guard and also to the Temple Of Zeus.

The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first
modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to
the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of
Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy

clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like.
A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west
side of the stadium will bring you past the First
