Olympia

One of the most celebrated sanctuaries in all of Greece and the birthplace of the Olympic Games is the historical site of Olympia. Often referred to as the ‘Valley of the Gods’ a stroll through the ancient site will allow you to gaze upon mesmerising sculptures and archaeological wonders including the temple of Zeus and the first lighting of the Olympic flame at the Temple of Hera. Travelling to the site is easy as there are boat rides that can take you to the Greek mainland where you will find plenty of guided tours available. After you’ve visited the ruins you may wish to wander around the old town and grab a bite to eat before returning back to Zante.
