"Olympia, home of the Olympic..." Greece Things to Do Tip by Radix2

Greece Things to Do: 909 reviews and 1,592 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
