Ancient Olympia from Katakolon

Andreas, with his A/C Mercedes taxi can be there waiting for you at the port to take you for about 5 hours to see the sights in Olympia. First you will see the Alpheios Dam. Another stop is made at a new amphitheater. This theater, made of stone, was built to remind you of the ancient times and holds 4000 people. The panoramic view is fantastic and on a clear day it is possible to see your ship at the port. Visit Ancient Olympia which gained its fame as a sanctuary of Zeus and Hera. The site also contains a wealth of other small shrines, gymnasiums and sculptors' workshops. According to tradition, here is where the Olympic games were founded in 776 B.C.. It is from here that the Olympic torch is still lit and carried to whatever corner of the world the modern Olympiads are held in. In the museum see exhibits of unique sculptural masterpieces, such as Praxiteles' Hermes, Paeoneus' Victory, Apollo and many other art treasures.

 

 

 

We work strictly with our A/C Mercedes sedans that can hold 4 passengers plus the driver. All tours are priced per tour not per person and do not include entrance fees to the archaeological sites or food.

Overnight tours include the drivers' hotel, meals and all tolls/gas. They do not include your hotel, meals and entrance fees to the sites.

None of the taxi tour drivers are licensed guides and would not be able to go into the sites or museums with you. We consider ourselves very knowledgeable about Greece and its history and would give you a lot of information on all the places you would visit before you go in. Licensed guides can be hired at most sites if you choose to do so.
