The experience is just amazing. Walking through this ancient site one can imagine all the athletes getting ready to compete, the sound of the cheering of so many centuries ago. Even though I've visited the site 4 times, I still get goosebumps when I'm there...More

We were on a day tour from our HA cruise and really enjoyed our day spent here. So much history and well worth the money spent for all the information we received. Not a lot of shade around so wear a hat, take an umberella...More

This place is amazing - lots to see. Try to go off-season as the heat can be unbearable as there is a lot of walking. But it is a great place if you are interested in Ancient Greece.

We went to Olympia just for the purpose of this site ans we weren’t deceived. It is filled with ancient history and many ruins. The entrance is 12 euros per adults and gives you access for the day and museums. We took 2 hours and...More

Olympia archeological site reflects the monumental past of the city. Yet, the site itself is poorly maintained and the excavations are not presented well. Although, most of the tourists’ guides recommend a day on site, I believe that two hours will be more than sufficient...More

Visited first with a guide and again my wife and I on our own. In our 9 vacations spent in Greece, this was one of the highlights! Would recommend it to everyone.

Visited as a couple on our own without a guide. The majority of people there were from a cruise ship and had guides. No queues which was great. Reasonable value as the 12 Euro provided admission to the site and two museums. The Olympic museum...More

The archaeological site of Olympia possesses a great history and has some nice ruins. We visited without a guide, however if we visited again I would definitely hire one. The site has some well preserved ruins and obviously a lot of history, so it is...More

It is really worth to visit the historical site of Olympia Games in the village. The site is large. The temple remains, flame torch, arch leading to the racing field etc. are for memories. Come here early prior to the huge crowds at noon.

As mentioned, go when the facility opens. It will give you time to wander in peace and take it the sites. The walking is easy...no hills. Please allow time to visit the museum. Tour groups can be an issue. People are running... More
