You will almost certainly visit the site of the enormous Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Whilst you are there take the time to wander the edges of the site. You'll find the remains of a 1st century Roman baths complex, and various other buildings, all quite well-signed in English.

Although not huge, there are some nice bits of mosaic and some good examples of how the heating system worked.

Worth a look before you go elsewhere.

Entrance to site on Vasilissis Olgas. Open daily, April - September 8.30am - 7.30pm, October - March 8.30am - 3pm. 2 euro or joint Acropolis ticket.
