How to walk along the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens
The Stadium where 50 000 spectators could watch performances and fully made of marble is located at the very center of Athens. The Olympics Games and the Gladiator fights used to take place here and now there is a museum here where all the Olympics torches are kept.

Now the stadium holds sports competitions very rarely. It becomes a place for different concerts, exhibitions and other Greek cultural events.
