Full description
Step into ancient history with a visit to Olympia. On the way to Olympia, stop at the Corinth Canal, a masterpiece of modern engineering. Upon arrival, embark on a guided tour of the site. During the tour, see the Temple of Zeus, the Gymnasium, the Altar of Goddess Hera, and the site where the Olympic flame is lit every four years. During the tour around this UNESCO World Heritage Site, see the Leonidaion, where all the important visitors to the Olympic games were hosted, and the Stadium which was designed to hold up to 40,000 spectators.
