Ancient Olympia

Birthplace of the Olympic Games


One day Trip


Ancient Olympia is the birthplace of the Olympic Games and one of the most famous must visit destinations in Greece. The Olympic Flame of the modern day Olympic Games, at a simple and symbolic ritual, is lit by reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror in front of the Temple of Hera and then transported by a torch to the place where the games are held. During the Olympic Games it burns day and night on a special altar. When the modern Olympics came to Athens in 2004, the men’s and women’s shot put competition was held at the restored Olympia stadium.

Within a short distance and across a green park, the Archaeological Museum of Olympia, which has been operating since 1982, hosts a prominent collection of exhibits found during excavations. Among the most notable exhibits are a collection of statues and countless figurines of terracotta and copper.
