Overview
Ancient Olympia Day trip offers the visitor the irresistible combination of stunning natural scenery and the legacy of a fascinating and diverse cultural heritage. The ancient Olympic Games were a series of athletic festivals held in honor of Zeus,The games were originally held in Olympia as early as the 776 BC. The most outstanding building is the 5th Century Temple of Zeus, built by Livon, which contained the 12 meter high statue by Phideas, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The stadium which could seat at least 20,000 people and was the largest of its kind. The Temple of Hera is where the Olympic flame is lit from the sun and then taken by runners to light the torch wherever the games are being held, a tradition which dates all the way back to 1936AD. Even today you will notice runners using the area for fun and for practice. The museum is across the road and contains the 4th Century BC statue of Hermes by Praxiteles
