Ancient Nemea: stadium : Michelin's recommendations
Remnants of a stadium from the 4C BC were found here. The stadium, where the Nemean Games were held, could accommodate 40 000 spectators and measured 22m wide at each end, 27m wide in the middle, and 177m long. The starting line, marked with stones, is well preserved. It supported the wooden mechanism that gave the starting signal. There were thirteen running lanes, and the athletes entered the stadium through a 36m-long vaulted passage (from about 320 BC). The names of some of the competitors can still be seen on the walls.
