The highlights 
  • Admire the ancient training facilities, the gymnasium and palestra.
  • Share your thoughts about the wonders of the ancient world under the shady trees – one of them was here!!! The golden and ivory statue of Zeus was once housed in the Temple.
  • Don't miss out on seeing the place where the Olympic flame is lit
  • Grasp the opportunity to run the Olympic track!
  • Finally, choose between the crystal-clear waters of Agios Andreas Beach or Kourouta Beach.
  • Agios Andreas is ideal for those who prefer to be closer to the port. Just a breath away from Katakolon port, it is nice for families with young children as the rocks in front of the beach form the boundaries of a natural pool. Enjoy a dip into the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea or just unwind under the Greek sun.
  • The site has a special interest, as the sunken city of Ancient Pheia still lies in the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea so don't forget your snorkels!
  • At the sea front bar, the sea breeze will accompany you while you enjoy your ouzo with Greek mezedes "a small bite of whatever".
  • For those who wish to extend their tour, Kourouta beach is a perfect choice. Also very popular among the locals since the waters are crystal clear and thus has been awarded the Blue Flag, a voluntary Eco-label given to clean beaches that are also safe.
