Despite being secluded near the western coast of the Peloponnese, Olympia became the most important religious and athletic center in Greece. Its fame rests upon the Olympic Games, the greatest national festival and a highly prestigious one world-wide, which was held every four years in honor of Zeus. The most important sanctuary of Zeus is situated here, as well as Altis and the original Olympic stadiums of the Games.
Ancient Olympia has been the center of attention in antiquity, and today is the departure point of the Olympic Flame that is lit here, every four years prior to the new festival. The starting line is still visible, so take your position and run this historical course, competing with the athletes of the past, or simply some of the numerous tourists visiting this area. Your Greece private sightseeing tour also includes a visit to the Olympia archeological museum and the Museum of the Olympic Games, where artifacts and collections related to both ancient and modern Games are housed.
After lunch we will take the way back to Athens by the same route, where our Delphi & Olympia private tour will end.
