Private tour to Ancient Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympics (day tour)
Drive away from Athens, through the industrial area of Attica, with a view of the Saronic Gulf islands. Stop off for a photo at the Corinthian Canal and enjoy the view from the bridge of this unforgettable marvel of 19th century marine engineering. Travel back in time before the opening of the canal and imagine ancient workers pulling their ships over the strip of land separating the Aegean from the Ionian Sea.
Continue your scenic drive through the Greek countryside until Olympia, the birthplace of the Ancient Olympic Games. Upon arrival you may opt for a private guided tour within the Olympic site and museum. Your certified guide will accompany you and initiate you into the values of the Olympic Spirit. Olympia, which is one of the monuments of the world heritage of UNESCO, has the appearance of a park. Then visit the museum, just a breath away from the site. Experience the displays consisting of only original exhibits, such as the pediments of the Temple of Zeus and the famous statue of Hermes of Praxiteles. Finally enjoy some free time among the locals as you relax over a coffee or lunch, try the Greek souvlaki or do some shopping.
