Visit the ruins of the Sanctuary, with its athletic quadrangles, stadium-temples and treasuries; then browse in the modern Archaeological Museum, a treasure house of Archaic, Classical and Roman sculptures, including the famous Niki "Winged Victory."

This was one of our favorite stops, without ever going into Olympia! Use the little tourist train for 6 Euro and get taken to a LOVELY beach with a great hotel/restaurant and enjoy the gorgeous water. The town (Katakolon) also had really great shopping!

Catch the little tram {6€) in the town to go to the winery (except on Sundays) and a lovely little beach. Go early to get a chaise.

It is easy to grab a private bus tour outside of the cruise terminal for 10 Euro (which is the same price as the train) to Olympia. The buses are comfortable and deliver you right outside Olympia.

Olympia site and folk dances with Greek Mezes was a wonderful excursion. Imagine walking on the site where the original Olympics took place 2,000 years ago. Wonderful guide.

Better than expected! We enjoyed this port. We hired a taxi for the day (Andreas Stamos) and that was the best decision we made. We saw the Ancient Olympic Stadium & museum, watched olives being pressed, and visited a nunnery set into the cliffs of a mountain. He was very knowledgeable. It made the stop outstanding.

Magna Grecia farm visit was excellent. You get a little bored of the normal site seeing on a long trip so visiting a working olive oil farm and eating local foods was fun.

The museum of archeology is very good. And, the reading material for this excursion does not give credit to the size of the first olympic site. It needs to be visited over 3-4 hours for best effect.
