Please note that this is a page on the Old Opera ("Olympia" Theatre), NOT the Stadium of the 1896 Olympics! And yes, the Opera is a wonderful place, we love it and we always enjoy it.

Don't miss the Olympia Theater if you visit Athens. Really impressive. Good for a visit with kids; they can run a full tour and get on the podium afterwards.

The Panathinaiko-Stadium is a real gem. It's well looked-after (no trash or litter) and offers endless photo opportunities for people who love architecture photography. You can run (if you like!) on the tracks, but also climb the stands. On the top stand you get a...More

Hard to believe that this place is made out of all marble. The workmanship is beautiful. Worth a quick stop.

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
main roads and residential streets will give you a
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
