A trip to Ancient Olympia and the Isthmus of Corinth
The Ancient Greeks were known for their love of arts, nature, and of course sports! This tour takes you to the famous site where the first Olympic Games were held in the 8th Century BC.
The Olympic flame of the modern-day Olympic Games is lit by reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror in front of the Temple of Hera and then transported by a torch to the place where the games are held!
On your way you to Ancient Olympia you will stop at the Isthmus of Corinth, since 1893 the Corinth Canal has run through the 6.3 km wide isthmus(narrow bridge), effectively making the Peloponnese an island. Today, two road bridges, two railway bridges and two submersible bridges at both ends of the canal connect the mainland side of the isthmus with the Peloponnese side.
This tour will start at your hotel in Athens. Your drive to Corinth is approximately 1 hour. Here you will see:
