Greece Things to Do: 889 reviews and 1,495 photos
Olympia, home of the Olympic games. Despite the millions of package tourists flocking around (I was one of them), this is still an amazing place. The remains of the Temple of Zeus indicate just how enourmous this building was before an earthquake destroyed it around 400AD. You must go for a run in the stadium (everyone does it of course). When you get tired of the crowd, go and sit in one of the shady groves (pictured) and absorb the serenity. Don't miss the attached Museum for a view of the artifacts dug up on the site.
Senerity, History, eye-boggling ruins.
Address: Olympia, Greece
