Well worth the €5 entry fee each to see this stadium. You get an audio guide included in the entry fee and this makes all the difference to bring the place to life. Be prepared for this place to be very warm in the heat.

Just the feel that 1st modern olympic held here gives you enough thrill when you are here. With the help of audio guide which comes without additional cost with ticket you start livng in that era. Olympic torch are treat to watch.

One of the must visit places. £5 entrance fee with audio guide included. Closes quite late so recommended to visit after all the other museums. Best to go around 530 till close as u can view the sunset with Acropolis as the background.

You can see this stadium from the street so 5 euros entry appeared unnecessary. It’s made of marble and you can sit inside and admire . Not sure if exact capacity but could fit in several thousands .

There isn't much to do other than look at it. You can pay to go inside, but we just took some photos from the outside. It's worth seeing.

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

I recommend the bus or walking. Traveling by car in Athens is stressful and unnecessary.
