We depart from Athens in the morning and follow the coastal National Highway and make a short stop at the Corinth Canal. We continue our four hour drive until we reach Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games (8th century AD). Explore the archeological treasures, monuments and temples of Olympia, including the ancient Gymnasium where athletes trained, the Temple of Zeus, the Temple of Hera, the statues of Nike and Hermes of Praxiteles, and the altar where the Olympic torch is ignited for the modern Olympic Games. Visit the Archaeological Museum which exhibits important excavation findings from the Prehistoric times to the Early Christian Period. Following, take a lunch break at a traditional tavern in Olympia before we depart towards Delphi.
