Olympia, Olympia

Tel: 26240 22517 or 26260 22529's insider take:

Starting in 776 B.C., the Olympic Games were held every four years over a five-day period, during which the entire Greek world observed a sacred truce. Events included a foot race, boxing, and chariot- and horse-racing. The Roman emperor, Theodosius I, a Christian, banned the games as pagan rites in 393 A.D. As well as the stadium and other buildings, you'll see the impressive ruins of the Temples of Zeus and Hera. The modern village of Olympia is a 15-minute walk away. Open daily. May–Oct: 8–7:30, Nov–Apr, 8:30–5; 6 Euros.
