We went to the city and it was very pretty up there and the views were great but getting up there is horrendous! The lines are insane to ride the tram up there or to ride a donkey. You have to walk up the same road the donkeys take up so it isn't very safe and it's very tiring. Once you get to the top there are thousands of people from the cruise ships all trying to do stuff so it's very crowded and frustrating.
We couldn't find the beach so one again I recommend taking a tour there. The port call isn't nearly long enough, we could barely get something to eat and take some pictures in the main square before we had to go back.
We went to the site where the first Olympic games were held and the temples of the greek gods and goddesses, it was very informative and interesting. The itinerary said Olympia and shopping though and there wasn't much time at all for shopping.
We took a taxi to the beach and it was beautiful. Recommend taking a tour there. The white sand beaches really aren't close enough to go too, all of the beaches have a lot of rocks and shells but it's still pretty. The water was very cold but worth getting into because it was so blue and clean.
We were so ready to be away from all the kids at that point that we went and partied the night away (OK only until midnight since we had to be back on the boat but it was better than nothing!) and it was a lot of fun! Wish we were there longer because nothing really starts to happen there till around midnight.
