CRUISE TO OLYMPIA, WHERE THE SPIRIT OF COMPETITION LIVES ON

This Greek seaside town is the gateway to the ruins of Olympia. The ancient games began here in 776 BC, continuing for over 1000 years, until they were outlawed as a pagan festival when Rome officially adopted Christianity as the only legitimate imperial religion. The complex is made up of temples, workshops, and the training structures that have given us the word we still use today to describe such facilities – gymnasium. The games did not recommence until 1896, but their ancient roots are acknowledged when the modern Olympic flame is lit here every four years, before beginning its long journey to the host nation.
