The first modern Olympics were held in which historic city?

Although the Olympics were held every four years for centuries during the height of ancient Greece, they had been banned by the Roman empire for over a thousand years by the time of the first modern games, held in Athens in 1896. Those games were a far cry from the global spectacle of today’s Olympics – only 13 nations participated in 43 different events.

Alexandria, Egypt
Athens, Greece
Rome, Italy
London, England

The correct answer is Athens, Greece.
