The Panathenaic Stadium or Panathinaiko was another stop on the Athen tour. We got off the bus for long enough to admire from one end that athletic stadium that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Reconstructed from the remains of an ancient Greek stadium, the Panathenaic is the only major stadium in the world built entirely of white marble (from Mount Penteli) and is one of the oldest in the world.

I have been lucky enough to experience both sporting events and concerts at this venue.
It is of course the birthplace of the Olympic Games.
Most recently I got to experience the ending of the Athens Marathon.
It was meaningful and really beautiful and most importantly a source of National Pride.

Most people seem to just look at at the outside of this place but go in (cheap) and see one of the oldest tracks in the world. It was reconstructed from an old Greek stadium and held the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. The white marble structure is very nice and they use this stadium for track and even concerts.

Still standing after over a hundred years since the first modern games, this stadium displays the ultimate spirit of sportsmanship where the prowness of the athletes took center stage without distractions of bells and whistles. Just the athletes competing and the spectators who come to cheer for them.

Had we not been in such a rush, I probably would've known about the audio tour inside the stadium. Like most tourists, we simply stood at the gates, snapping photos and gazing into the magnificent arena.
Reconstructed from an ancient Greek stadium for the 1896 Olympic Games, this stadium is the oldest in the world and is also the only made entirely of white marble.

This was easily the most under rated thing we found in Athens. While most people just stood outside and took photos, we decided to pay the entry fee (only 3 euros!) and take a walk around.
The entry fee includes an audio tour, so you can spend some time inside the stadium listening to the history of the building and the games that were played there. The best part, however, was running around the track and doing little mini races. After my wife kicked my butt on the track, we took some photos on top of the podium.
Perhaps we made it to be more fun that it was, but after a long day of seeing other sights in the city, some playful fun at the Panathenaic stadium was exactly what we needed. Let loose and go for a run around one of the oldest tracks in the world! :D
