Visit Kastella in Piraeus to admire the beautiful panoramic views and behold the Panathenaic Stadium (Kallimarmaro). Also, explore the Acropolis & go to Plaka for a bit of shopping.

Stop by Syntagma Square and, if you’re lucky, watch the changing of the guards near the Parliament House.
Visit Kastella with its winding streets and 19th-century mansions.
Make your way over to Panathenaic Stadium, or Kallimarmaro (“beautiful marble”), the only one in the world made entirely of marble. Athenian Roman Senator Herodes Atticus rebuilt the original stadium in marble in 144 CE with a capacity of 50,000 seats. Largely abandoned a few centuries later with the rise of Christianity, the stadium was excavated in the 19th century and put back into use as an Olympic venue in 2004.
Explore the Temple of Zeus and you will see 16 of its 104 giant Corinthian columns that survived invasions and quarries of the temple for building materials. This temple took 638 years to complete and was the largest one in Greece.
