Panathenaic Stadium - Kallimarmaro, Athens: 44 reviews and 81 photos
This splendid stadium containing 60,000 seats and completely covered in marble was the site of the first modern Olympic games in 1896. It is a later reconstruction of the one rebuilt by Herodes Atticus in 144AD. In 2004 the Olympic Games were held in Athens at a newer venue but the finish of the Marathon occurred here as well as the archery contests. Occasional concerts and other performances are still held here. You can run around the track when it is not in use!
