Full description
Upon arrival, transfer in our private vehicle from Katakolon, the port of your arrival, to the ancient site of Olympia. Wander through the place where the ancient athletes lived, trained, made sacrifices to gods and competed absorbing the wisdom of the ancient Greeks at iconic ruins. Ponder the existence of Zeus at the stunning temple built in his honor, once home to one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. Discover the place where the Olympic Flame is ignited every four years for the modern Olympic Games. Step back in history at this stadium, run and follow the footprints of the first athletes. Take a picture of yours on the marble starting line extant up to this day.

The tour continues in the museum. There, admire the unique pediments of the temple of Zeus, two immense sculpted complexes. Discover significant ancient artifacts from the site, but the masterpiece of ancient Greek art, Hermes of Praxiteles will astound you!

Later on, take a stroll through the town of Olympia and soak up the modern flavor of the town. Sit at a town’s café, go shopping or savor a traditional Greek meal. Wine lovers may want to take an optional excursion to a local winery built by the sea in natural scenery and sip on the wines produced there. If you choose to swim in turquoise blue waters, the beach is organized and you can relax and enjoy a beverage or Greek nibbles. The private vehicle will always be nearby to facilitate your transfer and at the end of the day you can safely return to the port.
