Katakolon (Olympia)

Katakolon could not seem less of a cruise port if it tried. A tiny enclave clinging to the western Peloponnese coast, it's a sleepy place except when ships dock. But it's a popular cruise destination because of its proximity to Olympia. Ancient Olympia was one of the most important cities in classical Greece. View more

The Sanctuary of Zeus was the city's raison d'être, and attracted pilgrims from around the eastern Mediterranean, and later the city played host to Olympic Games, the original athletic games that were the inspiration for today's modern sporting pan-planetary meet. At the foot of the tree-covered Kronion hill, in a valley near two rivers, Katakolon is today one of the most popular ancient sites in Greece. If you don't want to make the trip to Olympia, then Katakolon is an ideal place for a leisurely Greek lunch while you watch the fishermen mend their nets, but there's just not much else to do there.

Relax and unwind on one of Greece's award-winning beaches during this scenic, half-day excursion to 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 kilometres) in length, with a breadth of approximately 98 feet (about 30 metres). 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.


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.

Magna Grecia & Olympic Games Museum

Explore the ancient history of the Olympics and flavours of Greece during this scenic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


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.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.93 miles (about 1.5 kilometres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and at the museum. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least 21 years old to be served alcoholic beverages.

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. Walk the fabled grounds on the ancient fields of play, where fierce competitions took place. Don't miss the Leonidaion, a former guesthouse, and Pheidias' workshop, where the sculptor created his revered statue of Zeus.


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 fisherman 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.
