Start your tour by wearing a virtual reality mask that allows you to view the Olympia archaeological site in 3-D. Admire one of the seven wonders of the world, the 13-meter-tall gold and ivory statue of Zeus. Walk to the stadium area and watch the athletes compete in a foot race around the track, thanks to your virtual reality equipment. The running track is more than 200 meters long and almost 30 to 34 meters wide.

After this, visit the temple of Hera, one of the oldest temples in Greece and head to the Museum of Olympia, an important scientific institution that holds antiquities from different periods that will leave you speechless.
