I visited Olympia the summer of 2007 and I found it really nice. It was terribly hot during the day, but the area with the ancient monuments was so crowded. I arrived in Olympia with the bus from Athens and I spent the night there. The trip lasted about 5 hours, but it was worth the effort.
I was so excited when I saw the huge temple of Zeus and I thought how they managed to build such big constructions! Also, I found beautiful the statue of Hermes of Praxiteles in the Archaeological Museum, because I had heard so much about it and never saw it.
I liked the modern town as well, not very big but full of taverns and tourist-shops; I took a great walk in the streets in the night, it was full of people, most of them tourists.
