Inhabited since prehistoric times, Olympia remains best known as the site of the original Olympic Games, held there for the first time in 776 BCE. Inscribed on the World Heritage List, the remains of Olympia's sanctuary allow visitors to admire the timeless mastery of ancient Greek builders. A major tourist attraction in the western Peloponnese, the sanctuary ruins consist of several structures that once served as temples dedicated to the gods Zeus and Hera. Just east of the sanctuary lie the remnants of an ancient stadium and hippodrome, where Olympic athletes trained and competed. Begin your tour at Olympia's famed museum of archaeology, which provides a vast collection of ancient terracottas, bronzes, and sculptures. Our Greece trip planner allows you to plan your trip to Olympia and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
