Don't miss the Olympia Theater if you visit Athens. Really impressive. Good for a visit with kids; they can run a full tour and get on the podium afterwards.

The iconic first Olympic stadium. Well worth a visit, You can almost feel there's 1000s watching with you. I recommend the free headset for an unguided tour as it'll pace you to see all there is in around 35mins. Look out for National museum days...More

We were nicely surprised by this pleasant experience. Highlight was when kids decided to do some sprint racing on the track.

You an view the stadium from the open end. There isn't a huge amount to see, it is after all just a stadium but it is large and impressive and again, it's the sense of history which really makes the visit. Worth visiting if you...More

I really enjoyed to see the theather and I found myself imagining how the Olimpic games were done in the past. I recommend you to get the audioguide - it shows you architetonic details and try to recriate the atmosphere of the old times. All...More

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
underground stalls, the square is now mostly
frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set
off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
