Day trip to Olympia - (Kefalonia Excursions)

Nick B           

It is a long day but worth it.After disembarking on the Peloponnese
mainland we headed for the ancient archaeological site of Elis that is still being excavated .The Guide provided a good background history to the importance of Elis and its connection to Olympia.We then went to the Olympic Village where we stopped for 2 hours.To be honest it was tacky and a waste of time.Would have preferred more time at the ancient sites and missed this stop altogether.At Olympia the Guide gave a very interesting account of the history of Olympia and the ruins on the site which helped fuel the imagination when exploring the site afterwards.Very enjoyable day out.
