Embark on a scenic drive to the sacred precinct of Olympia – a beautiful place of ruined temples, olive trees and the very first Olympic stadium. Explore the Temple of Zeus with its mighty stone columns. Walk or, if you’re up to it, run the original course in the stadium with its marble starting blocks still intact. It’s in this ancient paradise that the Olympic flame is relit every four years and delivered to each new city that hosts the games.

Feel the rhythm and joy of Greek music as a troupe of dancers takes to the stage in traditional costumes. Watch them perform classic national and local dances, keeping the stories of bygone times alive. And if you’re invited to dance, have fun! Enjoy a glass of wine or ouzo, accompanied by some traditional Greek snacks. It’s an all-encompassing taste of your destination.
