Ancient Olympia Private Tour From Athens

The Olympic Games were held every four years throughout Classical antiquity, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD.[2]

The archaeological site held over 70 significant buildings, and ruins of many of these survive, although the main Temple of Zeus survives only as stones on the ground. The site is a major tourist attraction, and has two museums, one devoted to the ancient and modern games.

It used to be thought that the site had been occupied since about 1500 BC, with a religious cult of Zeus developing around 1000 BC. It may be that instead there was only a sanctuary from the 9th or 8th centuries, though the question remains in debate.Others believe that remains of food and burnt offerings dating back to the 10th century BC give evidence of a long history of religious activity at the site.

After Visiting The Site You can have a break with a Lunch, snack or a drink with the fantastic view

.

On the way back we are going to visit also the Corinth Canal.(Isthmus)

Enjoy :)
