Come explore the ruins of Ancient Olympia located in a lush valley formed by the Alfios River. You will meet your guide who will take you on a one-hour walking tour of the chief ruins of Olympia.
You will see the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Zeus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the Stadium, where the marble starting blocks are still in position. After nearly 1,500 years, Olympia came back to life with the shot-put events for the 2004 Olympic Games being held at this site.
A short walk from the Olympia site is the Archaeological Museum displaying treasures unearthed in over a century of excavation. See parts of the pediment from the Temple of Zeus, including scenes commemorating Pelops chariot race and illustrating the mythical war between the Centaurs and the Lapiths.
Also on display are the Hermes of Praxiteles, the Winged Victory (Nike) of Paionios, which was the figure inscribed on all the 2004 Olympic medals, and a helmet inscribed Miltiades, the name of the commander whose forces defeated the Persians at Marathon.
