Olympia & Wine Tasting

Visit the archaeological site of Olympia. The site was a sanctuary even before the stadium was built and the games took place in 776 B.C. Today, only parts of the temple remain at the museum and only ruins remain at the site. The Temple of Zeus no longer exists and its traces have disappeared through the ages. The Temple of Hera, Prytaneion, and Philippeion were monuments standing in the sacred grove. The famous Stadium, with a capacity of 45,000 spectators, is entered through a long, tunnel-like passage. Stand at the starting line and imagine the voices of thousands of spectators seated on the stone bleachers.


Continue with a drive through picturesque countryside to a local family owned vineyard where you’ll be welcomed by the owners, the Kanellakopoulos family. Start your tour from the winery, with a mix of old and new equipment to the cellar. Visit the family museum with a collection of various old agricultural tools and equipment, interwoven with the estate cultivation throughout the years. You’ll have an opportunity to taste the wines they produce, along with some snacks offered by the owners.


Note: There is approximately 1 1/2 miles of walking on even ground, dirt and gravel.
