Visit the museum, and Olympia Stadium - where the ancient games were held in honour of the Greek god Zeus. As many as 45,000 spectators fit into the mud seats, to witness the ultimate contest of athleticism. See the stand where judges would sit and the white blocks where runners would line up to compete. The tradition continues stronger than ever, and the Olympic flame of the modern games is ignited by the sun here, in the ruins of the Temple of Hera. It is then taken to spread the Olympic values across the globe. The Temple of Zeus, and the Statue of Zeus - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - also rose here in all of their glory. Hewn from limestone, the temple contained the 13-metre tall statue of Zeus, which was sculpted by Phidias - one of Ancient Greece's finest artists. Although the statue has been destroyed, you can walk the temple's ruins and see the guesthouse where the majestic wonder was painstakingly crafted.

Excursões em OLYMPIA (Katakolon)

Explore the ancient history of the Olympics and flavours of Greece during this sightseeing excursion that covers three major highlights this area has to offer.


Ancient Olympia and Temple of Zeus

Depart the pier for the approximate 40-minute drive through rolling hills and olive groves en route to Ancient Olympia. Located in the middle of a fertile valley near the Alphios and Kladhios rivers, the site was a sanctuary even before the Olympic Stadium was built, and the games took place in the sacred area known as 'Altis'. The area's most imposing monument was the outstanding Temple of Zeus. It housed the gold-and-ivory statue of Zeus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.


Museum of the History of the Ancient Olympic Games, Sanctuary of Olympian Zeus Artefacts

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 40-minute drive to the Museum of the Ancient Olympic Games, one of the most important archaeological museums in Greece. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour. The museum is home to a collection of artefacts from the Sanctuary of Olympian Zeus, in Olympia, where the ancient Olympic Games were born and hosted. Construction of the new museum began in 1975 and it eventually opened in 1982, re-exhibiting its treasures. Following your visit, re-board your coach and head to the Magna Grecia Olive Oil Farm.


Magna Grecia Olive Oil Farm, Tour and Tasting

Upon arrival at the Magna Grecia Olive Oil Farm, take a guided walking tour. Along the way, an expert teaches you to roll the olive oil around in your mouth until it completely covers your palate and tongue. Learn to understand how to distinguish terms that describe the flavour of olive oil, such as 'bitter', 'spicy', and 'green and fruity'. After you have learned to recognize the different types of oil, you can distinguish a good quality oil from a poor one, know which olive oil goes better with fish, and which exalts the flavour of meat. Following your tour, proceed for a tasting of plain, extra virgin, and scented olive oils served with local specialities and red wine.

At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.

Kourouta Beach Break

Relax and unwind on one of Greece's award-winning beaches during this scenic, half-day excursion to Kourouta Beach.


Kourouta Beach

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 35-minute drive to Kourouta Beach. This sandy beach is situated in a populated area and stretches approximately 12.4 miles (about 20 kilometers) in length, with a breadth of approximately 98 feet (about 30 meters). The vegetation of the area consists mainly of deciduous trees and shrubs. Kourouta Beach has been awarded the Blue Flag of Homonym Program of the European Union.


Free Time

Upon arrival at this idyllic beach, you can relax and unwind, sunbathe, swim or explore the beach. Following your visit, re-board the coach for the approximate 35-minute drive back to the pier.

Olympia & Folkloric Show

Experience the splendid beauty, sights and traditions of Greece during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Greek Countryside and Ancient Olympia

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 40-minute drive through the Greek countryside en route to Ancient Olympia, one of the country's most popular attractions. Ancient Olympia was the site of the first Olympics in 776 B.C. and, most recently, where the shot-put competition was contested in the 2004 Olympics.


Olympia Archaeological Site, Ruins and Temple of Zeus

Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of the Olympia site. At the foot of Kronion Hill, see impressive, compact ruins that include the expansive Temple of Zeus, and numerous temples and altars.

Greek Wine, Snacks and Folkloric Performance

Following your tour, re-board your coach and proceed to a local restaurant for a glass of local wine and specialities, as well as a true Greek folkloric performance. Greece is one of the few countries in the world where folk dances are as alive today as they were in ancient times, and your visit represents a wonderful opportunity to see a troupe of dancers performing local dances in traditional costumes. Almost every dance has a story to tell. They continue to be passed on from one generation to another, keeping the national identity well and truly alive. You are welcome to join in when the dancers invite you. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the 40-minute drive back to the pier.
