Walking Tour - National Garden, Zappeion & Panathinaiko Stadium
This tour will take you to some of the most significant sites in Athens. You will see the ancient but well-preserved ''Panathinaiko Stadio'' where the first modern Olympic games took place, the ''Zappeion Megaron'' and the great National Garden with the Greek Parliament. Enjoy your walk and carry off some nice memories from Athens!
The National Garden (formerly The Royal Garden) is a public park of 15.5 hectares (38 acres) in the center of Athens. It is located directly behind the Greek Parliament building (The Old Palace). ZAPPEION MEGARON was donated by Evangelos Zappas and designed by the Danish architect Theophil Freiherr von Hansen. Zappas had started the Zappian Olympic Games, a precursor to the modern Olympic Games. The Zappeion Megaron was the Olympic village during the summer Olympic Games in 1896. PANATHINAIKO STADIO (The Panathenaic Stadium) also known as the ''Kallimarmaro'' (meaning the "beautifully marbled") is a multi-purpose stadium used for several events and athletics in Athens, since the ancient years. Also, it was the stadium where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1986. Panathinaiko Stadio is the only major stadium in the world built entirely of white marble from mount Penteli (Acropolis is, also, built of the same material).
