Departure Time

7:00 AM
When the global community turns its eyes to the world's greatest athletes every four years, it's honoring a tradition started by the early Greeks in the ancient city of Olympia. Your adventure begins with morning pickup at your hotel in a private vehicle and the drive to the archaeological site in the Western Peloponnese. Along the way, learn about the history of the games and their roots in ancient Greek mythology from your knowledgeable driver and guide.

When you arrive, enjoy several hours of free time to explore the site and monuments at your own pace. See the gymnasium and Palaestra, where athletes practiced leading up to competition, and feel millennia of energy as you enter the ancient stadium, where ancient Greece’s finest athletes strove to honor the gods through the Olympic ideal.

Marvel at the Temple of Zeus, where the famous golden statue of the god—one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World—once stood. See the Leonidaion, a hotel built in 330 BC to host distinguished guests of the games, and learn about the Elean Senate who organized the competition at the Vouleuterio. Delve even deeper into the history of the world's greatest athletic competition with displays and original artifacts at the Olympia Museum.

Reconnect with your guide at the museum exit, and return to your Costa Navarino hotel, stopping at modern-day Olympia on the way.
