"Bus" Olympia Transportation Tip by grkboiler

Olympia Transportation: 5 reviews and 3 photos

by grkboiler

Olympia is a long but scenic bus ride from Athens (almost 6 hours) via Pyrgos, but there are many buses throughout the day. There are also several buses from Patras, which is not too far away.

Most buses originating in western Peloponnisos will change at Pyrgos. You can also get there from the east through Tripoli, which is only a couple hours away.

The ruins are easy to find once in town.
