A scenic drive through the Greek countryside will take you to Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games. Our guides will accompany you along the way, providing all the historical and cultural background of the area. Whether you choose to visit the archeological site & museum of Ancient Olympia with one of our expert certified tourist guides or on your own, this beautiful archaeological park is sure to reward you.  Upon arrival, we will assist you to buy the tickets in order to avoid waiting in a long queue and you will be provided with a booklet on the site. Olympia, one of the monuments of the world heritage of UNESCO, has the appearance of a park.

Wrap up your tour with a dip at Agios Andreas beach, where the sunken city of Ancient Pheia still lies in the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea.

You may prolong your tour by visiting Kourouta Beach. A half-hour drive from the port of Katakolon, Kourouta Beach offers the perfect combination of endless blue, golden sand and an amazing view of the Ionian Sea. Kourouta has an endless variety of cafes, tavernas and restaurants to choose from. Enjoy the ultimate stress-free experience since whatever you desire is there within your reach.

 

  • Admire the ancient training facilities, the gymnasium and palestra.
  • Share your thoughts about the wonders of the ancient world under the shady trees – one of them was here!!! The golden and ivory statue of Zeus was once housed in the Temple.
  • Don't miss out on seeing the place where the Olympic flame is lit
  • Grasp the opportunity to run the Olympic track!
  • Finally, choose between the crystal-clear waters of Agios Andreas Beach or Kourouta Beach.
  • Agios Andreas is ideal for those who prefer to be closer to the port. Just a breath away from Katakolon port, it is nice for families with young children as the rocks in front of the beach form the boundaries of a natural pool. Enjoy a dip into the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea or just unwind under the Greek sun.
  • The site has a special interest, as the sunken city of Ancient Pheia still lies in the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea so don't forget your snorkels!
  • At the sea front bar, the sea breeze will accompany you while you enjoy your ouzo with Greek mezedes "a small bite of whatever".
  • For those who wish to extend their tour, Kourouta beach is a perfect choice. Also very popular among the locals since the waters are crystal clear and thus has been awarded the Blue Flag, a voluntary Eco-label given to clean beaches that are also safe.
