ARCHAELOGICAL SITE

Olympia, the most brilliant,the most revered panhellenic Sanctuary, dedicated to Zeus, father of gods and mankind is near the western coast of Peloponnese, in the magic valley of the river Alpheios, "in the most beatiful place in Greece" according to Lysias.

Below the Kronion hill, where the little river kladeos joins the plentiful waters of the mythical river Alpheios, in a place that even now is imbued with Olympic beauty and calm, lies the sacred grove of Olympia, the Altis.


It's located about 1km after the village Ancient Olympia which is approximately 40km away from the port and needs about 35 minutes driving to reach it. An easy walking place without many steps.
If you interesting to have a licenced tour guide for ruins with you while you visit them I can make arrangements for you.

There are signs in Greek, English and German language everywhere to read the history. I have also in my car the official books for the Site and the Museum and of course I'll give them to you during your visit there.
You need from 1 to 1 and a half hour to visit the site. Till now it's possible to do a quick tour with the car before you'll visit it just to have an idea of the place you're going to visit.


The entrance for adults is 6 euro. The combined ticket to visit also the Archaelogical Museum  is 9 euro. It's free the entrance for children and till 18 years old teens. It's free the entrance for students who have their student identity card with them. Older than 65 years visitors from the Europenian Community can pay the half ticket. It's open every day from 8am till 8pm the months between May to October and 8am till 5pm the rest months.
