Welcome to Greece! Visiting the Panatheniac Stadium and Archaeological Museum

Updated: Dec 19, 2021

While my first few hours in Greece wasn't on a positive note, (lost luggage) that was soon replaced by the beauty and air of history that surrounded me.


The date, May 2010. Class trip to Greece to find out about the history of the Olympics and much more.

I traveled out the country for the first time where I was able to witness many parts of history. Our first two days in we spent at the Panatheniac Stadium and Archaeological Museum.


Panatheniac Stadium

The Panathenaic Stadium or Kallimarmaro is a multi-purpose stadium in Athens, Greece. It is one of the most visited and historic sites in Athens, and is the only stadium in the world built entirely of marble. It was the site of the 1986 Summer Olympics as well.




The stadium had many interesting features such as seats for the Kings and Queens, an athlete's tunnel and signage.
