Why take this tour?

The blessed land of Olympia, as characterized by many, is a home to the most praised sanctuary of ancient Greece, dedicated to the father of the Gods, Zeus. It is the place where the most significant games of ancient Greece, the Olympic Games, were born, which were held every four years since 776 BC in honor of Zeus. The lighting of the Olympic flame takes place in ancient Olympia before each Olympic Game and proclaims the start of the Games. On the archaeological site of Olympia you will visit the Temple of Zeus, which used to host the gold and ivory statue of Zeus, a work of the famous sculptor Phidias and known in antiquity as one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
