After you leave the museum, your Athens Tour passes the Arch of Hadrian, one of the city’s most iconic monuments, and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Next, it’s on to the Panathenaic Stadium, home to the first modern Olympic Games. Skipping the entrance lines, your guide will take you through the marble halls and stands of this 2,300-year-old wonder and down onto the track. This is hallowed ground for sports fans; a must-do for anyone who wants to walk in the footsteps of over 2,000 years of athletic tradition.

Your Athens Guided Tour ends inside the stadium so you can spend more time exploring the ancient structure on your own.
