Full description
Discover the archaeological site of Olympia with a self-guided audio tour on your phone designed by an accredited expert.

Start the tour with an introduction to the Ancient Gymnasium of Olympia, where you will gain valuable insights into the values of the ancient Greeks and their attitude towards health and wellbeing. Then, continue to the ruins of the Philippeion - the once lavishly decorated memorial dedicated to the Macedonian king Philip II and his family. As you explore the archaic Temple of Hera, learn about the Heraean games, an ancient female running event lost in the mists of time. Later, reflect on the power of love as you marvel at the ruins of the Nymphaeum of Herodes of Atticus, built for the sake of his beloved wife.

One of the highlights of your visit will be the Ancient Stadium. Walk through the monumental portico, the so-called Krypte, which has been crossed by countless ancient youths dreaming to meet glory. Step inside the celebrated stadium to listen to the riveting stories of real and mythical athletic events tied to the history of Olympia.

After that, experience the imposing Temple of Zeus - 1 of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. Hear wonderful stories about Centaurs and Lapiths, as well as the founding myth of the Olympic games. End your walk in front of the ruins of the Prytaneion, where joyous celebrations were once held for the winners of the games at the heart of the fertile valley of Alpheios.
