Ancient Olympia full day private tour starts from Athens at 8 am and we drive southwest all the way to the Corinth Canal which is the place where Greece’s mainland gets separated from Peloponnese. The canal is cutting through the Isthmus and it’s so narrow, only 21.4 meter in width which makes it impossible for many modern ships to sail through it. The view is wonderful from there so we will take a short break for you to take some pictures and enjoy the scenery.
We will continue our trip towards Ancient Olympia which will take us approximately two and half hours.
Olympia is one of the most important ancient locations of Greece, the birth place of the Olympic games, an ancient athletic celebration that took place every four years to honour the god Zeus which was also marked a period of truce throughout Greece at the time.
