Ancient Olympia Walking Tour
Enter the stadium like a true Olympic athlete with the Ancient Olympia Walking Tour. An Evolved Guide local tourist guide will tell you the whole story of one of the most important places in the ancient world. Whether you are sporty or not, you will certainly have seen some competitions during the Olympic Games but have you ever wondered where this tradition was born? The Olympic Games are named after the city, Olympia, which hosted them every four years, exactly like our modern Olympics.
Admire the monumental remains of the grandiose Temple of Zeus. The Doric temple was one of the most important in the ancient world, above all because it contained the statue of Zeus, a chryselephantine statue (golden and ivory) made by the sculptor Fidia, the project leader of the Parthenon. This statue is considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Walking through the archaeological site together with your guide you will see legendary places and you will be able to enter the splendid stadium of the Olympics, where the competitions of the athletes were based.
To make the experience even more unique, you will also visit the Archaeological Museum of Olympia inside which the pediments of the temple of Zeus or the famous statue of Hermes with Dionysus of Praxiteles are preserved.
Also remember that our guides are local, so you will know information that normally cannot be read on the internet or in books because they are part of the local tradition.
On our Evolved Guide platform, the Ancient Olympia Walking Tour is customized by each of our tourist guides for itineraries, durations, departure times, prices and offers. Search among the proposals and choose the tourist guide that’s right for you.
