Ancient Olympia Tour Itinerary

7:30 amDeparture

We pick you up at the Port or Airport or your Hotel in Athens at 7:30 am

Corinth Canal

Your first stop is Corinth Canal or Isthmus of Corinth, a narrow canal drilled across mainland Greece and Peloponnese.

The Corinth Canal connects the Saronic with the Corinthian Gulf, thus connecting the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea. In this way, the sea trip from Ioanin to Athens was reduced significantly. The length of the Isthmus is about 6 kilometres and only narrow ships and yachts fit to cross it. 

Cross Peloponnese

VehicleWe make our way towards western Peloponnese crossing beautiful traditional villages and lush green mountains.

Your route passes by Tripoli of Arcadia, situated in the heart of the ancient world. On the way, you drive by picturesque mountainous villages just before you arrive through a forested road to the Sanctuary of Ancient Olympia in the Ilia region.

Ancient Olympia

Ancient Olympia

The archaeological site of ancient Olympia in a beautiful natural environment consists of where we will visit the museum of the Olympic game and the various archaeological sites and its Museum.

This magnificent place, the birth of the Olympic games, was housing one of the 7 wonders of the Ancient world, the gold and ivory statue of Zeus, which was created by Phidias.

As you stroll by the ancient paths you will visit the Doric Temples of Zeus and Hera, the Bouleuterion, the Prytaneion, the Stadium, the Gymnasium, the Palestra, the Workshop of Pheidias and so many others.

Rio Antirio Bridge

 After Ancient Olympia,  we will take a completely different route for our return to Athens.

We will head northwest to another engineering miracle, the Rio Antirio Bridge, one of the world’s longest multi-span cable-stayed bridges and the longest of the fully suspended type.

It crosses the Gulf of Corinth near Patras, linking the town of Rio on the Peloponnese peninsula to Antirrio on mainland Greece by road. 

Our return to Athens will be mostly close to the sea which will offer you endless views of the Corinthian gulf. 

Your driver will drop you off at your desired accommodation in Athens.
