We visited Olympia and Ancient Olympia whilst we were staying on Zakinthos Island.
We took our hire car on the ferry over to the mainland and drove to Ancient Olympia which took about 1 hour.
The site is amazing, I used to have a fascination when it came to Greek gods etc and this brought it all back.
You do not need to have a guided tour as you are handed a map when you buy your ticket and the ruins all have information boards in Greek, English and German (I think) so you can take your time and walk the grounds.
It made me realised how the Modern Olympic Games are quite similar in certain ways but very different in others
Great day out!!
