We visited Olympia as part of a tour around Peloponnese. I remember it was a hot day in August and there was a lot of people. I particularly liked the Hermes of Praxitelis statue in the museum. The detail of the statue captured me!! As for the rest of the area, it was indeed impressive if you think that all these were built thousands of years ago but in the end, I left with a feeling of sadness and depression.
