Day 05 – Olympia
As we are exploring the West Coast of Peloponnese a day´s visit to the birthplace of the Olympic Games will not suffice, so much is there to absorb. The scale of ancient Greek history never ceases to astound us. In this corner of the Peloponnese, the father of gods and men was worshipped; this is the site of Zeus’ most magnificent sanctuary. The centrepiece of the shrine, his gold and ivory statue, crafted by Phidias, stood 13.5m tall and was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It no longer exists but you will be able to admire first-hand the famous Hermes by Praxiteles. Both the site and the museum offer a vivid picture of the splendour, the glory and the breadth of a civilisation that gave so much to the world. You’re on the fast track for a time-travelling adventure through history, through the glory of Ancient Greece. On your marks. Get set. Go!
