Athens, Panathinaikon Stadium

Rebuilt for the first modern Olympic games in 1896 this stadium stands on the site of a much older stadium.

Today is Greek orthodox Easter Sunday so a lot of places and most of the monuments were closed. We took advantage of the day with a hop on hop off tour around the city and when it stopped here we had to look around.

I really don’t have many words for plces like this. Just simply beautiful. As someone who loves to workout and exercise this is like a mecca, the site of the first modern Olympic games.
