The Corinth Canal connects the Saronic with the Corinthian Gulf in the Aegean Sea, a dream of the ancients that came true in 1893. Rest and take some amazing photos above the Corinth Canal. Then, drive towards ancient Olympia, the birthplace of the ancient Olympic Games in Classical times. There you will visit both the archaeological site and choose between Archaeological Museum of Olympia with a great amount of artifacts and statues in it, and the Museum of the Olympic Games. The Games were held every 4 years from the 8th century BC untill 4th century AD. You will visit the Temple of Zeus, Pelopion, the stadium, the Temple of Hera, the Phillipeion, the Phidias workshop and many other structures that are worth your attention.You can feel the aura of the Olympic Games, fighting on the Pallestra or running around the stadium and understand why ancients took the cultivation of body, mind, and soul so seriously. When you feel hungry get ready to taste the famous Greek cuisine and have a memorable lunch in a traditional restaurant or tavern. It's up to you to choose from a variety of flavors of the most known Greek dishes. After your lunch at Olympia, drive back to Athens.
