Best Answer

* The ancient Olympic Games were always held in Olympia, Greece.

* The modern Olympic Games were first held in Athens in 1896, and were held there again in 1906, as the first of a second series of Olympic Games, the intercalated games, to be held in Anthens every four years in between the games being organised by cities around the globe. Though Athens 1906 had a big influence on the Olympic movement, the series didn't continue, making 1906 a bit of an exception, usually ignored in lists about the Olympic Games.

* Paris was the first city to host the Olympic Games twice, hosting them in 1900 and again in 1924. (Ignoring the intercalated games.)

* Counting the intercalated games, Athens was the first city to host the modern games trice: 1896, 1906, 2004.
