What you can expect

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transport to commence the tour.

The ruins of ancient Olympia, dedicated to Zeus, the father of the Gods and located at the south-western foot of Mount Kronios is a ‘must see’ destination when visiting the port of Katakolon. Our Olympia Treasures and History Tour departs by air-conditioned coaches or mini coaches from the port side for this great value tour.

Since 1829 when a French team partially excavated the Temple of Zeus and from 1975 to the present day The German Archaeological Institute continue to excavate the site. Olympia was the most religious and athletic centres in Greece and it is here that the Olympic Games were originally held every four years to honour Zeus.
