Description

Visit one of the most significant archaeological sites in Greece, the ancient stadium was where Olympic Games were born and taking place for years. The stadium you will see was built around the same time as the temple of Zeus, in the 5th century BC. The Hippodrome for chariot races lay near the stadium. Nearby ruins from a later age include baths and villas, like Roman emperor Nero had constructed as a private residence. Enjoy a stop at Corinth Canal on the road to Olympia, and at Acrocorinth for photos. Admire the Temple of Apollo in Corinth, and get a real sense of the scale of ancient Greek Agoras. Return to Athens via the amazing coastal road to Corinth, where you can admire small gulfs, crystal blue waters, and lush vegetation!
