About this activity
After pickup at your hotel, cruise ship or Airport by your private & informative tour driver, sit back & relax in one of our new Black Mercedes E Class, AudiA6 or Mercedes Minibus models with full leather & Wifi as you set off for the 1-hour drive to your first stop, the impressive Corinth Canal before continuing through the olive groves & orchards. Nestling underneath the dominating hilltop castle of Palamidi you will experience one of the jewels of Greece. Nafplion was its first capital and retains its charming Venetian quarter which is packed with local art, craft & food shops just beside the sea where you can pick your spot for lunch with an idyllic view to the Bourtzi castle in the bay.

In Nafplio our guide will be happy to provide a brief walking tour pointing out many of the historical aspects along the way, & if you wish to explore the castle itself but prefer not to climb the 999 steps to its entrance, we will also transfer you by vehicle. After lunch we continue for several hours to reach the village of Olympia with ample time to enjoy a relaxing evening.

After breakfast the following day sees a short drive to explore the archeological site of Ancient Olympia. Founded in the 8th century B.C. and famous as for its Olympic games of antiquity you see its extensive ruins which include the places where the original athletes were taught & trained and go through the tunnel to emerge in the stadium in which they competed. The site is still home to the Temple of Zeus and Hera where the Olympic Flame is lit, workshop of Phidias, in its modern museum displays significant masterpieces from the site.


On this private and flexible tour exclusive to your group alone, your considerate & experienced English-speaking tour driver will take full and special care of you and provide all the ancient and modern context along the way to help you make the most of the places you will visit all at the pace you are comfortable at. If you require a private Licensed guide to accompany through the Archeological site & museum we work with tried & tested guides & can provide one on request.
