Paying our respects to the father of all gods, Zeus, we will explore the fascinating archaeological site of Olympia, together with the incredible archaeological museum.

What to expect?

The Corinth Canal is 6 kilometers long. It connects the Ionian Sea with the Aegean Sea via the Corinthian gulf and the Saronic Sea and separates the Peloponnese with the rest of Greece. Constructed between 1881 and 1893 it involves an excavation of 80 m (262 ft) in depth, and is 6,3 km (4 miles) long, allowing ships of up to 10,000 tons to pass.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in experiencing the ultimate adrenaline rush and want to bungee jump the Isthmus Canal please state so. There is no extra charge for waiting time.

Ancient Olympia

Olympia in Greece was the site of the ancient Olympic Games, which were celebrated every four years by the Greeks.

The Archaeological Museum of Olympia is one of the most important museums in Greece. The museum's exhibition contains amazing findings such as sculptures from the Temple of Zeus, Hermes of Praxiteles and the Nike of Paeonius.

In the archeological site, you will see the gymnasium, the palaestra, the Philipeion, the workshop of Phidias where the gold and ivory statue of Zeus was built, the temples of Zeus, the temple of Hera, the altar where the Olympic torch is lit for the modern Olympic games and the remarkable ancient stadium.

The Archaeological Museum is where many of Olympia's greatest works of art and artifacts are displayed. Highlights of the museum include the Sculpture from the Temple of Zeus, arguably the finest surviving examples of Archaic Greek sculpture, the 5th century BC Winged Victory by Paiongs, the 4th century BC Hermes of Praxiteles, and a model of the reconstructed ancient Olympia site.
