Cost : 5 eurosThis stadium is a reminder that the Greek invented the olympic games. The stadium is huge and cladded with pure marble. You can get close to take pictures without paying entrance but I highly recommend buy the ticket to enter and go upstairs to get a fantastic view of the Acropolis. An audio device is included in the ticket and is well worth listening to.Entry fee: 5 euros

Don’t you wish to have such tours that offers both adventure and spectacular views, albeit from a lower ground?
Mention Olympics Games now and I will spend a healthy few minutes talking about the spectacular Panathenaic Stadium in Athens.
