What to expect

The birthplace of the Olympic Games is just across the Ionian Sea on mainland Greece. Catch the ferry over from Zante and head to ancient Olympia for a journey through the centuries at the site. You'll also visit the fascinating Archaeological Museum.

After docking at Kyllini, we'll drive to one of the most important sanctuaries of antiquity. Discover where the Olympic Games began in the 8th century BC and see the stadium where 45,000 spectators cheered on their favourite athletes. Wander about the site and revel in the faded glory of the site.

You'll also see the ruins of the Temple of Hera, where the Olympic flame was first lit, and of the Temple of Zeus, where the statue of Zeus – one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – once stood. Afterwards, head to the superb Archaeological Museum to see more treasures and relics before heading into Olympia town. Here, you'll have time for lunch and a browse around the souvenir shops.

    Smuggler's Cove

    Smuggler's Cove is a picture-postcard white pebble beach with a surprise – a shipwreck from an alleged smuggler who ran ashore in 1980. After pick-up, head by coach to Porto Vromi – it takes about 90 minutes – and hop on a boat towards Smuggler's Cove. Enjoy some free time to visit the famous beach, admire the scenery and take a few Insta-perfect selfies. Then, as we cruise back towards Porto Vromi, you'll discover Stegnitis Bay, a place so secret it dosen't even show up on Google. Cool off with a swim stop here and take some pics.
