    the Stadium

    Favorite thing: This Stadium is called "KALIMARMARON" which means "Beautiful marble stadium". It was built in the 4th century BC. It has been restored twice and its capacity is 70.000 spectators. In 1896 the first modern Olympic games were held in this Stadium.

    you are standing on important ground here!

    Fondest memory: Standing on the track of the old Olympic Stadium here, which is brand new compared to the Parthenon atop the Acropolis, seen in the background here...such a historical contrast!

    Favorite thing: You must run a lap around the Olympic Stadium (see me below - pant pant!). The Panathenaic Stadium was built some time in the 1800's, then was rebuilt in marble for the first Olympic's in 1896.
