Kallimarmaro or Panathenaic Stadium of Athens

Interested in climbing marble stairs to get some of the best views of the Acropolis, Lycabettos, and  the city of Athens, while being swept away on a nostalgic athletic adventure? Look no further than the Kallimarmaro Stadium of Athens. Its name means beautiful marble and it is the only one of its kind in the world to be entirely built of marble.  Centrally located in the district of Pangrati, and east of the National Gardens and the Zappeion Exhibition Hall, it remains one of the main historic attractions of the capital.
