Pnyx: The venue of the Ancient Athenian Democratic Assembly



Odeon of Herodes Atticus: located on the south slope of the Acropolis of Athens.
It was built in 161 AD.




The Zappeion Exhibition Hall inaugurated in 1888.
During the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, the fencing events were hosted in its circular atrium; during the second International Olympic Games in 1906, the lack of infrastructure and facilities led to its being used as the "Olympic Village"



The Panathinaiko or Panathenaic Stadium (also known as the Kallimarmaron, i.e. the "beautifully marbled") in Athens
is the only major stadium in the world built fully of white marble.
In ancient times it was used to host the athletic portion of the Panathenaic Games in honour of the Goddess Athena.
The remnants of the ancient structure were excavated and refurbished, with funds provided by Evangelos Zappas
for the revival of the Olympic Games in 1896.
