Olympia Tourism

Olympia tourism

Olympia is a place that primarily offers a unique sightseeing experience. Famous as the birthplace of the Olympic Games, Olympia was actually a sanctuary of Zeus and this is why the ancient games would take place, to honor Zeus. In the site, visitors will see the temples of Zeus and Hera, the ancient stadium, the palaestra and the workshop of sculptor Phedias, among others. In the large Archaeological Museum of Olympia, there are many collections of findings from the ancient site.

Frequent tours are organized from Athens and other towns of Greece to Olympia. Apart from a visit to the ancient site, this is a great place for hiking to the lush green forests and the lovely villages in the surrounding region. Over the last years, tourism in Olympia is developing in terms of agriculture, while many cultural courses and festivals take place there in summer.
