Whats Unique:

A great suggestion for a long day trip to some of the most interesting places in Peloponnese! This long day tour will take you to Ancient Corinth (famous not only as a place of great archaeological interest but as an important landmark in the history of Christianity as well as St.Paul lived and preached in Ancient Corinth) and to Olympia the birth place of the Olympic Games.

Description&Program:  
Leaving Athens behind we drive on the coastal road towards the West. Our first stop (after approximately one hour) is the Corinth Canal. There we’ll make a short stop, enough to see the Canal, (approximately 6 km long connecting the Aegean with the Ionian Sea), take photos and visit the local cafeteria. Twenty minutes later we’ll arrive at the small town of Ancient Corinth where we’ll visit the archaeological site with the unique monolithic Temple of Apollo (one of the oldest in Greece, 585 B.C.), the Bema from where St. Paul preached and the Museum.

Driving afterwards through the hills of Corinth and the mountains of Arcadia, among thousands of olive trees, we’ll arrive at prefecture of Elis where we’ll visit the archaeological site of Olympia.

You are going to visit the archaeological site with the Temple of Zeus (where the gold and ivory statue of the god was placed -one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world - work of Fedias) the Temple of Hera (where the lighting of the Olympic Flame takes place every four years) the original ancient Olympic Stadium and many more monuments.  After the archaeological site we will visit the Museum.

The Archaeological Museum of Olympia is one of the most important museums in Greece. The museums permanent exhibition contains finds from the sacred precinct of the Altis and the rest archaeological site dating from the prehistoric era. Among the many exquisite exhibits you we will see the famous marblestatues of Hermes of Praxiteles and the Nike (Victory) of Paionios.

After the conclusion of our tour in Olympia we can have lunch in the town and start our return trip back to Athens.
