OverviewHide
Your tour begins in ancient Olympia, the famed archaeological site of the first Olympic Games in 776 BC, where a guide acquaints you with the Temple of Zeus, the Temple of Hera, the Shrine of Pelops, the Treasury, the Palaestra, and the Gymnasium. Step inside the Archaeological Museum of Olympia, which is considered to be one of Greece's most important museums for its collection of artifacts that were excavated from the ruins. Through an audio headset, follow along as your knowledgeable guide leads you past bronze sculptures, mosaics, stone relics, ornaments, and the Hermes of Praxiteles sculpture, an ancient masterpiece. You'll then travel to Agriturismo Magna Grecia, a family-owned homestead known for producing olive oil and wine. Enjoy a guided walk through the olive grove and vineyard, learning all about the history and harvesting of local olives and grapes. A spread of local snacks awaits you back in the dining room, all of which are served with a side of traditional music and Sirtaki, a popular Greek folk dance.
