What to expect

Tucked in the Alfeios River valley in the western Peloponnese, you'll find the ruins of ancient Olympia. On this tour from Kalamata, you'll step back in time to when the Olympic Games were first held and embark on a guided excursion of the Archaeological Museum, temples and ancient sports facilities.

Olympia, one of the largest sanctuaries in ancient Greece, was a centre of worship for the god Zeus. You'll travel from Kalamata to visit the ruins, which will be brought to life as your guide regales you with anecdotes and fascinating facts while you wander around this open-air history book.

See where the ancient Olympic Games were held, including the stadium and accommodation for visiting officials. And set eyes on the ruins of Temple of Zeus – once the largest in the Peloponnese – where one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Statue of Zeus, was housed. After your guided tour, you'll have free time for shopping before heading back.
